Make-up Work Policy

Participants that are unable to attend a session, either pre-approved or unplanned absence, are required to complete a make-up assignment equivalent to the amount of class time missed. Class time is usually 3 hours. Make-up assignments are meaningful, purposeful, and applicable to the content of the course. Samples of completed make-up work may be requested.

Any absences beyond the maximum number of permitted absences will result in not earning credit for the course.
