Tardiness and Absences Policy for Northern Industrial Training

Regular attendance is crucial to successful completion and personal development. Due to the intensity of the training, and the personal development taught in our school, all students must maintain regular class attendance. Failure to meet required attendance may result in non issuance of certifications.

All students are required to contact NIT if they are unable to attend class for any reason. Unexcused, consistent tardiness or absences will result in dismissal. All absences are unexcused unless prior arrangements were made with NIT staff. A tardy can be counted at either the beginning of the day or returning from lunch.

Students who have an illness during class, which prevents his/her attendance, may be subject to a refund in accordance with the enrollment contract. Additionally, the student may be rescheduled into another class, providing an opening exists. These two conditions will be considered only if the student can provide written documentation from an attending physician that justifies a continued absence.

NIT reserves the right to further investigate any claims of illness. In the event the documentation is not received within one day of absence or the documentation does not satisfy NIT's administration, the student will be expelled. Our policy pertaining to tardiness and absences is as follows:

8 Weeks or less Training Programs

Programs that are 8 weeks or less in length have an allowable combined tardy/absence policy of 4.

  1. The second tardy/absence will result in a verbal warning.
  2. The third tardy/absence will result in a written counseling.
  3. The fourth tardy/absence will result in termination from programs eight (8) weeks or less in length.

9 Weeks or Longer Training Programs

Programs that are 9 weeks or longer in length have an allowable combined tardy/absence policy of 6.

  1. The second/third tardy/absence will result in a verbal warning.
  2. The fourth/fifth tardy/absence will result in a written counseling.
  3. The sixth tardy/absence will result in termination from programs nine (9) weeks or more in length.
