Confusion Surrounds Hunter’s Attendance Policy

HUNTER COLLEGE–Students and professors alike are confused about the current attendance policy at Hunter, and the confusion seems to go as far up as the dean level, as interviews with a dozen sources have discovered. Many students were told at the start of the semester that attendance could no longer be counted towards grades.

However, the official policy in the 2018-19 course catalog states that while CUNY schools are “not attendance-taking institutions,” professors may indeed use attendance to calculate grades, as has been the past practice.
