    I would call the school and ask that question. I'm sure every school has their own set of rules regarding this.
    Leslie Becker-Phelps, PhD responded:
    That is a lot of days to miss. As for your question of whether they will drop you, check with the school. But, I have 2 concerns based on your question: Is there a problem (aside from missing school) that you need to attend to? Also, is missing school related to not wanting to go or put full effort into it? These issues are problems in themselves that would need to be addressed.
