Summer Immersion Program:
The attendance policy for SIP allows two excused student absences. We understand that emergencies happen, and students may need to be excused from class. We ask that students communicate any anticipated absence with their teaching team and make arrangements to make up any missed work.
If you foresee having prior commitments (e.g., other summer programs, vacation plans, etc.) that will cause you to miss several days, we strongly encourage you to apply for the Self-Paced Program as this program allows more flexibility to accommodate competing priorities.
Girls Who Code will un-enroll and remove program access for students who do not adhere to the SIP Attendance Policy. Due to the 10-day program span, we cannot accommodate more than two absences without a substantial impact on your learning experience. Only once you have reached your third absence will you be unenrolled. If we offered you a seat and you have any known absences lasting more than two days, please email us immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As students complete it at their own pace, there is NO STRUCTURED ATTENDANCE POLICY for the Self-Paced Program. However, we recommend students attend Advisor & Partner Events and Student Hours. Students will also need to complete all coursework by the deadline of Friday, August 9th at 12:00 PM EST.
