Attendance Policy

Huntington University of Health Sciences is an attendance taking institution, therefore, prior to receiving a federal student aid disbursement; HUHS will verify participation in each registered course at the end of Week 1 in the module. If a student chooses not to attend the first week will be institutionally withdrawn from the course. After attendance is established, if at any point during the module a student fails to submit assignments for more than 14 consecutive days, the student will be institutionally withdrawn from the course and will receive a “WF” for the final grade. A “WF” will be counted as 0 GPA points in the GPA calculation; additionally, a “WF” will impact both pace of completion and maximum timeframe calculations.

Establishing Attendance

During Week 1 of each module, the student is required to establish attendance in each course by successfully submitted coursework during this 1st week before the established deadline.  After the end of Week 1, the following day is the Pell Recalculation Date (PRD) commonly referred to as the Census date. On this day, the Director of the Financial Aid will determine the student’s current eligibility status for receiving financial aid. If a student has not established attendance in a course he/she will be institutionally withdrawn from the course.

Maintaining and Monitoring Attendance

In addition to receiving a weekly progress notice, attendance will be monitored and recorded for each student on the appropriate course grade tracker. Assignments must be submitted regularly for each course in order to remain enrolled in the course. If assignments have not submitted for 14 consecutive days the student will be institutionally withdrawn from the course and will receive a “WF” for the final course grade.
