Absenteeism among university students is a widespread issue today. It is known that absenteeism may incur negative effects on students' academic performance as well as many social problems. This study was carried out to investigate and highlight students' perceptions of the factors affecting university attendance for online and in-person classes. The study surveyed students from a variety of disciplines at the University of Toronto Mississauga. The results of the survey indicated that the statistically significant factors affecting university attendance include student's current university CGPA (Cumulative GPA), and lectures where mandatory participation is required. Appropriate remediation to reduce the percentage of students’ absenteeism are also proposed.
