  1. *ASSIGNMENTS (Weekly or Daily List of Assignments)

(Include required submission of course requirements as shown in the Grading Plan.)


(Include Date, Time, and Location)

Final Examination Attendance

Attendance at final examinations is mandatory. Such examinations are administered in all academic subjects at the end of each semester in accordance with an examination schedule issued by the Dean or designee. Any student who must miss a final examination has the responsibility of notifying his/her instructor to make arrangements to take the final examination on an alternate date, if possible. Faculty members should not change the published class examination schedule without prior approval from the Dean or designee.



Attendance is taken for each class meeting. Absences are counted beginning with the first class meeting after the student registers; however, students are responsible for all coursework and assignments made or due from the first day of class. In general, students should have no more than four absences for a 15-week term, no more than three absences for a 10-week term, no more than two absences for an 8-week term, and no more than one absence for a 5-week term. Each course syllabus will clearly state the number of absences considered as the acceptable maximum for the class as well as how late arrivals and early departures will be handled. Each course syllabus will also state policies regarding make-up work, if allowed. The policies stated in the course syllabus for a student’s specific class will be the policies for which the student will be held accountable. Communication with the instructor concerning absences is essential. If a student has excessive absences, he/she is encouraged to withdraw from the course after consulting with the instructor. Instructors will not withdraw students for any reason. If a student fails to officially withdraw from a course, this could result in a grade of F and adversely impact financial aid. Withdrawing from a course is the responsibility of the student.

Therefore, a grade of F will not be changed without written approval from the Vice President of Instruction and Student Services. Military personnel who are involuntarily called to active duty for unscheduled and/or emergency situations and those individuals called for jury duty will be excused with official documentation. College related events which the student is required to attend by the club sponsor and which have been approved by the appropriate Dean, will also be excused. Official documentation will be required. Make-up work will be accepted under these excused circumstances as outlined in the individual course syllabus.

NOTE TO INSTRUCTOR: For Distance Education/Hybrid classes, pick one or more of the choices below and state in your syllabus how you are tracking.


Attendance in a Distance Education or Hybrid course will be recorded within the FIRST WEEK of the course by one or more of the following:

  • Student contact with the instructor through attendance at an on-site orientation session;

  • Student participation in an online orientation session that is tracked through Blackboard’s “Student Tracking” feature, or through “Tegrity Reports,” or similar features in other course management systems;

  • Student submission (online or in-person) of completed assessments, assignments, essays, or other course related work.

After the first week, the student's "attendance record" will be based on the student's meeting course requirements such as submitting assignments or communicating with the instructor as outlined in the course syllabus. It is expected that a student will receive a weekly attendance record based on requirements stated in the course syllabus. If a student does not meet attendance requirements as stated in the course syllabus, the student is encouraged to officially withdraw from the course. Failure to officially withdraw from the course could result in a grade of F and adversely impact financial aid.


(How to make-up missed homework assignments, exams, quizzes, etc.)


Grades of WP and WF are no longer applicable. A student who wishes to withdraw from a course(s) after the drop/add period may do so by having a withdrawal/drop form completed by Admissions/Records Personnel or their designated representatives. A student may withdraw from a course(s) after the drop/add period until the withdrawal deadline. The specific date can be found in the Class Schedule each term.


If you have a disability that might require special materials, services, or assistance, please contact Calhoun’s Disability Services Office in the Chasteen Student Center, Second Floor, Room 220G (Decatur Campus) or call (256) 306-2630 or (256) 306-2635.


Calhoun Community College will communicate campus-wide information via SPACE student e-mail. You have a SPACE e-mail account, which you can access from www.calhoun.edu. Your user name is your first initial, last name, and last four digits of your student ID number (Example: jsmith1234). Your initial password is 'cal' and the last four digits of your student ID number. You will be prompted to change the password.
