Telepresence and University Attendance

Telepresence robots are going to require policy decisions for universities with attendance policies. Would a student be counted as present if they are participating in classroom discussion using a robot, rather than being physically present?

I suspect that universities are restricted from revising attendance policies to include telepresence, as accrediting agencies and U.S. financial aid regulations would all need to agree to any such policy before adoption.
