ABSTRACT

Attendance at lectures has become a vital area of concern in Nigerian universities. Attendance to lectures for students and lecturers plays a vital role in Nigerian Universities today. These apparent facts are very challenging. Most Educational Institutions' Administrators are concerned about students’ irregular attendance at lectures. This research aims to determine the impact of the 75% NUC lecture attendance policy and its implementation in Nigerian universities. Implementing a 75% NUC policy on lecture attendance will go a long way in producing quality students in Nigerian universities. This 75% is because when we look at the students’ performance based on the number of times the student attended Lectures, we find out that those who attended lectures regularly have the maximum score and highest pass mark. This research presents proof of students’ performance based on the number of times they attend lectures to instigate the Nigerian Universities to implement the 75% attendant policy. When we look at the number of times the student attended Lectures, we will see that some of them may not be qualified to write examinations because they are lazy to attend lectures. Concerning the NUC policy on 75% attendance, students increase their performance if they attend classes regularly, producing quality students in Nigerian universities.


Keywords: impact, lecture, attendance, NUC, and students.
