School attendance and absenteeism of students is an important prior for students to live their behavioral change process expressively. However, there is a positively moderate level relation between school attendance and school success (Krenitsky-Korn, 2011). For university students, absenteeism may change according to their social status, independent behavior and attitudes, and their ages. This study aimed to gather views of lecturers and students about students' absenteeism attitudes. In research, the pattern of phenomenology is used. In choosing the research group, maximum variety sampling is used. In this sense, nearly 180 students and 50 lecturers are determined as samples. Data examined by content analysis method.
