I am planning on going on vacation or a school trip during New Start. How many days can I miss?
Program dates are from June 13 to July 24. While attending New Start, we ask that students make the commitment to attend class each and every day. Because a normal semester is 16 weeks and New Start is only six, students will be working at an accelerated pace. For this reason, there are no excused absences in New Start. If you are planning a vacation that will cause you to be absent, we recommend that you do not enroll in this program.
Students may miss only two full days of class, though they should be mindful of their instructors' individual policies regarding attendance points, exams, or content missed. If students miss more than two days, they may be asked to leave New Start and fail their enrolled courses. Students who are removed from the program for attendance reasons will not get fees refunded and will have to pay back any financial aid.
