COVID-19 & Class Attendance: Class attendance is an important and proven indicator to student success; however, the health and safety of the campus community, fellow students, faculty and staff should also be considered when a student is not feeling well. Please refer to Tennessee Tech's In Full Flight site for guidance related to COVID-19 - https://www.tntech.edu/infullflight/index.php.
The primary focus of Flight Path is to encourage consistent class attendance and participation by freshmen. Regular class attendance and participation (in-person or online depending on course delivery) is a major factor in determining the academic success of freshmen. This initiative represents a collaborative effort between multiple offices within, Academic Affairs, Enrollment Management, and student services including: departmental faculty, Residential Life, academic support staff, and Student Success teams.
First-year students with documented course absences or course participation concerns will receive early intervention contacts from trained members of the Residential Life staff, as well as, Student Success staff to ensure they are connected with faculty, staff and services specifically allocated to facilitate their success.
