First Week Attendance Information

Peninsula College views student attendance and participation as crucial to academic success.  Therefore, an instructor may request a student be withdrawn due to non-attendance that compromises the student’s ability to successfully complete the class. 

Withdrawal for non-attendance is not automatic.  During the first-week of the quarter, instructors may initiate an administrative withdrawal for nonattendance in a course if:

  • You fail to attend at least 50% of a face-to-face class or
  • Fail to login for at least 50% of online class activity.

If withdrawn for non-attendance you will be notified by email or mailed a letter.  Any applicable refund will process and no grade will show on the transcript.  You should schedule an advising appointment if you need to discuss your schedule.

If you plan to remain enrolled in a course(s) but know you will have attendance difficulties during the first-week of the quarter, please contact your instructor(s) immediately to request an exception to this procedure.

  • Please be aware that a withdrawal for lack of attendance or non-participation may reduce the amount of financial aid you receive, delay your graduation, or necessitate a repayment of aid already received.
