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 If a student chooses not to attend the first week, the student will be institutionally withdrawn from the course.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the module a student fails to submit assignments for more than 14 consecutive days, the student will be institutionally withdrawn from the course and will receive a “WF” for the final grade.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.
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, on the following day, attendance in each course is taken. On this day, the Director of Financial Aid will determine whether or not attendance was established in all enrolled courses for the Module and current eligibility status for receiving financial aid will be reviewed. If a student has not established attendance in a course, he/she will be institutionally withdrawn from the course.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 If assignments have not submitted for 14 consecutive days the student will be institutionally withdrawn from the course and will receive a “WF” for the final course grade.
