Yes, requested absences still count toward the allowed absences.
Attendance is core to our program, and we want every student, as much as possible, to learn from our dedicated instructors and mentors at every minute of our session. Students may acquire no more than 2 absences throughout the program in order to be considered a completer of the course and receive a completion certificate.
These 2 absences may be used for any reason. If you must be excused due to an emergency medical or family situation, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and your request may be granted on a case by case basis.
Please note, you will still be required to submit the coursework for that unit by the posted deadline.
