Monitoring of Student Attendance
Students are responsible for monitoring their attendance and are solely responsible for adherence and compliance with CCMH attendance requirements at all times.
Any student failing to meet the attendance requirement may be placed on academic probation and monitored for the duration of the term. Probationary status will be noted in a student’s record.
Attendance in all courses at the Canadian College of Massage & Hydrotherapy is mandatory. The College has adopted a mandatory attendance policy to fulfil student loan requirements and to confidently maintain educational standards. However, 20% discretion is allotted for reasons of health and emergency.
Attendance is an integral component for student success and competence and to maintain the highest educational standards possible.
Students are strongly urged to maintain an excellent attendance record as it is proven that there is a high correlation between attendance and grades. Students will forfeit direct observation of demonstrations, lecture delivery, daily quiz grades and/or formal examinations if they are not in class. Additionally, any material missed due to an absence becomes the individual student’s responsibility to cover. Further information, demonstration or lecture will not be provided and therefore, the absent student must ensure that all information covered in their absence is obtained and understood, as it may be the subject of evaluation at some point in the program.
As a measure of accountability, students who have not attended at least 80% of classes for any course (regardless of reasons of health and emergency situations) may be placed on Academic Probation, lose supplemental examination privileges, and will not qualify to appeal grades for the applicable course.
