Seven previous attendance challenges show that students who attend 100 percent of their classes during the first four weeks of a semester set the stage for lasting success in a number of ways. Those students tend to:

  • Complete a higher percentage of attempted credits
  • Achieve higher GPAs
  • Stand a better chance of staying in school and finishing their program

It’s a foregone conclusion: Making attendance a priority inevitably contributes to academic success.
