The mission of the Office of the Academic Support is to enhance all students' educational experience by providing superior and quality academic support.
Purpose of Monitoring Attendance
DeVry believes that regular class attendance is vital to all students' academic success in classroom-based coursework, and students are expected to attend all of their scheduled class sessions.
In addition, financial aid distribution and federal regulations obligate DeVry to establish the last date of attendance promptly for students who have not completed a semester, or who have failed to start a subsequent semester, regardless of whether they have officially withdrawn.
In order to encourage regular class attendance, as well as comply with external regulations, DeVry has established an attendance policy requiring daily monitoring.
