Attendance is recorded at Ameritech, and there may be consequences to course grades and/or enrollment status due to lack of attendance/absences:


In the Medical Assisting (MA) program, attendance is part of the professionalism and participation grade, which is 10% of a student’s overall grade for each class. If a student is absent more than three (3) times from a course, 10% will be deducted from the student’s overall grade at the end of the term.

In the Associate of Science in Nursing program, more than one absence from any lecture class, lab, SCE, or clinical may result in the student being immediately withdrawn from the course. 

In the Occupational Therapy Assistant (OTA) program, more than one absence from any lecture class, lab, or field work may result in the student being immediately withdrawn from the course.

In the online RN BSN program, attendance is tracked through participation in the online course (see Online Attendance, below). Weekly attendance is required.” (Ameritech College Catalog 2019-2020 Academic Year).
