Attendance Policy

Faculty will monitor attendance for all students and maintain attendance records in the University's learning management system.  Students' overall grade for the term may be impacted for students who do not maintain regular attendance and participation in their courses.

In the Psychology programs the minimum attendance requirement is 80% for the other non-psychology programs it's 70%.  All students must meet these minimum attendance requirements.

International Students: 
Students must maintain minimum 70% attendance each quarter.  Students who fail to maintain attendance may result in termination.

Why does the University get involved in voter registration?

The 1998 reauthorization of the federal Higher Education Act and the State of California Donahoe Higher Education Act include a requirement that higher education institutions make a “good faith effort” to make mail voter registration forms available to all enrolled students. This federal and state legislation supports the campus’s long-standing goals of engendering leadership and citizenship among the student body.

Am I eligible to register to vote?

In order to register to vote you must be a citizen of the United States, a resident of California, and at least 18 years of age at the time of the next election.

Voter Registration Deadline

The deadline to register or re-register to vote for any election is 11:59:59 p.m. Pacific Time on the 15th calendar day before that election.

If this deadline has passed:

  • You can submit an application and it will be processed for future elections.
  • You have the opportunity to “conditionally” register to vote and vote provisionally at your local county elections office. Contact your local county elections official for more information or visit Conditional Voter Registration.

If you recently registered online, please wait at least 24 hours before checking your registration status.

What You Will Need

To register online you will need

  • Your California driver license or California identification card number,
  • The last four digits of your social security number and
  • Your date of birth.

Your information will be provided to the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to retrieve a copy of your DMV signature.

If you do not have a California driver license or California identification card, you can still use this form to apply to register to vote by completing the online interview by 11:59:59 p.m. Pacific Time on the 15th calendar day before an election.

July 15th Action letter (.pdf, 1529K)

On Monday, July 15, 2015, the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) forwarded the final report for its accreditation review of Sofia University. In conducting its review, the evaluation team assessed the university under the WASC Commission Standards and Core Commitments and submitted its report for action by the WASC Accrediting Commission for Senior Colleges and Universities.

The Commission is slated to act on the report in February 2015. Accreditation indicates that Sofia University meets high standards of quality, capacity, and effectiveness. We are proud to have been accredited by WASC since 1992,  and I am pleased to report that, having successfully completed a rigorous review process, Sofia University has once again been reaccredited. In the Commission’s Action Letter, Sofia University was commended for the “new leadership for assuming responsibility for the continuation of the education of some 400 enrolled students, for finding the financial resources to sustain the university through a challenging transition, and for seeking to articulate a sustaining vision for the university going forward.”   Many faculty and staff participated in this effort, which led to the establishment of the new programs,  improvements in educational technology, and a stronger focus on opportunities.  These and other outcomes will continue to guide our educational improvement efforts during the next decade and beyond.
