Attendance and class participation are part of developing a thorough understanding of the material covered in these courses. BMCC policy states that a minimum of seventy percent (70%) attendance is required to receive a grade of C or better. Grades of incomplete will only be given under exceptional circumstances, and only if the student has completed 70% of course requirements with a passing grade. ON-LINE students must log on and complete weekly assignments to demonstrate attendance in online classes. Simply contacting your instructor does not count as attending.
