Attendance for online classes will be taken each class through a question asked during class that allstudents must respond to in order to be marked present for class
. If the student does not respond to theattendance question posed by the instructor the student will be considered absent.-Participation will also be graded based on completion of the self-monitoring journal.

Auditing Policy:
In order to protect the integrity of weekly discussion and group dynamic, students auditing the class mustattend at least 75% of (9 out of 12) class meetings to successfully complete the course. Failing to do so will
result in an “UNSUCC” on the student’s transcript indicating unsuccessful completion.

 There are no exams for this class.
There is no required textbook for this course.
The Eating Well Diet: Introducing the Vtrim Weight-Loss Program

If you miss a class, you must review the transcript within the week or you will not be able toview it. For inperson classes, the lesson summary is available under the
“Lessons” tab of the Vtrim website

choice. Each semester, students should submit in writing to their instructors, by the end of the second full
