ABCs All University Students Must Know
Attending classes consistently from the very first day is essential to your student's college success. Class attendance:
- Is critical to your student's learning experience.
- Keeps students from being dropped from a course or failing it solely based on lack of attendance.
- Increases your student's odds of being successful in the course.
Before your students is eligible to receive full financial aid, your student must register as a full-time student and attend all classes from the first day. Professors will drop students who do not attend class everyday during the first two weeks. When a student is dropped for this reason, his or her financial aid may be adjusted to reflect this drop. This may mean a smaller reimbursement check or even an outstanding balance in your student's student account.
Conflict and problems are part of life. If your student is in a situation that requires him/her to leave the University, they need to withdraw from their courses before they leave. If your student simply abandons his/her courses, they will most likely receive grades of “F” at the end of the semester. Your student may also have to return a portion of your student loan or grants to the government, lenders or the University. To avoid unpleasant surprises, never depend on anybody else to drop or withdraw your students from a course or from the University. It is your student's responsibility to withdraw from unwanted courses. Withdrawal forms are available here, on my.Pfeiffer and in the Registrar’s Office.
Academic Dishonesty such as cheating and plagiarism is a serious offense. Students found guilty of this offense may fail the course and/or will be suspended from the University.
