Students who choose to attend Andrews University make a commitment to be part of a gathered community and agree to be held accountable for honoring that commitment.
Absences. Absences due to field trips, medical appointments, illness or emergencies that occur will not be excused. Students should plan to offset these conflicts with attendance at other programs. However, those who miss Thursday Chapels for one of these reasons may have the optoin to view a missed program online and submit a report. Please contact the Student Life office within one week of your absence to discuss this option.
Attendane Monitoring. Students are responsible for keeping track of their attendance throughout the semester. To access your record please go here and follow the links. If programs you have attended do not show up within a week, please use the "missing program" link provided on your attendance record page and provide the information requested so that the matter may be looked into.
A co-curricular fee is assessed at the end of each semester. This fee is cumulative, based on nonattendance. Students are charged $25 for the first program that falls short of the required number and $11 for every program short thereafter. A maximum of $344 may be charged to traditional students and $179 to non-traditional students per semester. This fee can be minimized or completely eliminated by attending programs.
Traditional undergraduates must complete at least 60% of the co-curricular requirement in order to pass for the semester. Students who fall short of the pass level will be placed on co-curricular probation. Letters will be issued at the end of the semester as follows:
|Completion Level||Programs Short|
|Pass (Letter of Commendation)||0|
|Pass (Letter of Acknowledgement)||1-6|
|Pass (Letter of Low Attendance)||7-12|
|Fail (Letter of Co-Curricular Probation||13+|
Co-Curricular Probation and Registration Hold
Students placed on co-curricular probation at the end of a semester willbe allowed to continue their studies the following semester. However, a hold will be placed on future registration until the pass level is achieved in the new semester. A continued pattern of failing attendance will result in the withholding of registration privileges for a period of one semester.
