Attending class is a vital part of your college education - Below are five very important reasons to attend all of your classes:

  • You will likely get better grades - studies show that students who attend class usually get better grades.

  • Your federal financial and state aid depends on it - federal financial aid cannot be dispersed unless your professors have verified that you are attending class.

  • You will miss out on something - great class discussions, tips for doing well on tests, and pop quizzes are things you don't want to miss.
