Attendance Policy

Students of LHA are required to sign an attendance agreement stating the days they intend to come in weekly, and must adhere to such agreement at all times unless otherwise authorized by the Administration. Students must be actively working towards completion of assignments weekly. If no activity has been completed whether online or in person, the student is considered to be falling behind. Unsatisfactory progress resulting from failure to meet requirements may result in warning or probation status for that student. If the student still fails to meet satisfactory progress in attendance by the next evaluation point, the student may be dismissed from the program. Students are required to complete a minimum of 65% of the assignments possible based on the applicable attendance schedule in order to be considered maintaining satisfactory attendance progress. Evaluations are conducted at the end of each evaluation period to determine if the student has met the minimum requirements. The attendance percentage is determined by dividing the total number of weeks scheduled by the total number of assignments completed. At the end of each evaluation period, LHA will determine if the student has maintained at least 65% of the completed assignments since the start date of the course, which indicates that, given the same attendance rate, the student will graduate within the maximum time frame allowed .

At least two comprehensive practical skills evaluations will be conducted during the course of study.
