If you do not attend at least one class session (in person or by electronic equivalent) by Tuesday, May 29, you will be reported as a “no show.” If you are enrolled in an online course, the instructor will provide details on how online attendance will be verified.
Registration will be cancelled for any course in which a student is submitted to the Registrar’s Office as a “no show”. The Registrar's Office will notify students who were reported as a "no show" via email. This email will include the appeal process which must be completed by June 1. You can review the appeal guidelines at http://www.clayton.edu/registrar/noshowpolicy
The “no show” student will not be charged tuition for the cancelled course. However, there may be serious financial aid consequences for students who are receiving financial aid, since this will reduce the number of enrolled credit hours. Please do not let this happen to you.
