Helpful Guidelines:

  • Attendance is defined as academic activity, virtual or otherwise. Academic related activities include but are not limited to:
    • Physically attending class
    • Submitting an assignment
    • Taking an exam
    • Attending a study group
    • Participating in an online discussion (Important: Logging into an online class without active participation is not considered academic attendance for Title IV purposes)
  • The report lists names of students officially registered for the course. If a student is attending but does not appear on your roster, that student is not officially enrolled in your course. Please follow up with the student.
  • You will need to select "Attended" or "Never Attended" for each student in the course.
  • Students who are reported as “Never Attended” in all of their courses will be withdrawn from the semester.
  • Quick Tip: Once you’re on a specific course attendance screen –
    • Click on the first student's ‘Not Selected’ window.
    • Type A for Attended or N for Never Attended.
    • Press the Tab key twice to move to the next student.
    • Type A for Attended or N for Never Attended.
    • Press the Tab key twice to move to the next student.
    • And so on until the last student has an A or N.
    • Press the Tab key one more time to ‘Submit Changes’ and press Enter.
