Abstract

This study looks at factors that influence student frequency of
absenteeism in a university setting. Twenty variables categorized
into nine groups are examined, namely; gender, commuting, timetable,
courses attended, assignments and tests, extra-curricular
activities, health, social influence and academic performance.
Most of the variables are significant to frequency of absenteeism.
The empirical results indicate that absenteeism is a phenomenon
that is controllable through sound policies and support system.
The result also shows that besides students' own attitude, the
administration, lecturers, family and the community have
important roles to play in order to encourage students to classes.
While disciplinary measures are still relevant, proactive
intervention by lecturers and administrators can reduce the rate of
class absenteeism.
