MedPrep II Attendance Policy

MedPrep II is a pass/fail course with no homework or exams.


  • Class attendance is required. 
  • Excused absences will be granted on an individual basis but should be infrequent.
  • Attendance is taken at the beginning and end of class by QR code. Both codes must be scanned in order to receive credit for attendance.


  • Students are required to complete one four-hour shift every other week.
  • While attendance is taken on an honors basis, spot checks are performed in order to confirm students are present for their shifts.
  • Students who fail to show for a shadowing shift risk failing the course.
