Attendance and Lateness

While requirements for class attendance within any course are at the discretion of the instructor, regular class attendance is necessary to achieve satisfactory performance in college work and an important part of professional responsibility.

  • Registration┬áis required to attend any class or clinical course.
  • Neither credits nor grades will be granted to students who have not properly registered.

Lateness to classes and/or clinical is not tolerated at Columbia University School of Nursing. Unless extenuating circumstances prevent a student from being on time, students are expected to be in class or at clinical on time. It is at the discretion of the instructor or preceptor to not admit the student to class or clinical if the student is tardy.
