Attendance Policy

Students who fail to participate in their course within the first three (3) days (as defined by a minimum of one discussion forum post) may be automatically dropped from the course. This does not guarantee, however, freedom from financial liability for a course for which a student signed up but in which the student did not participate.

Payment arrangements can be discussed on a case-by-case basis. Current Unity students should reach out to Student Accounts at (207) 509-7261 or jroberts@unity.edu.
