                                                                          IMPORTANT NOTE

Federal regulations require institutions to provide proof financial aid recipients who received a failing grade attended class. Therefore, a last date of attendance of an academically related activity is required for all students who receive a grade of F.

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 according to the Title IV regulations.

Instructors must maintain records for no less than three years if claiming a student receiving an F grade did attend at least some of the semester and must be able to prove participation.

If assigning an "F" grade a last date of attendance is required. Hours attended are not used.

Last Day of Attendance Instructions:
    •    Last day of attendance format is MM/DD/YYYY
    •    If the student completed the course and earned the F, please enter the last day of the class. For example, if the final          exam was taken on 12/12/2014, you would enter 12/12/2014. Date cannot be in the future, it must be today’s date          or prior.
    •    If the student stopped attending, please enter the last day of attendance at an academically related activity. Please note          you may need to email documentation to the Financial Aid office (isu-finaid@mail.indstate.edu) that substantiates          academically-related activity for that student, upon their request. Call Heather Wells at x3660 with any questions.
    •    If the student never attended class, enter the first day of the term as the student’s last date of attendance. For Fall          2015, you would enter 08/19/2015.
    •    If you fail to assign a last date of attendance for any student to which you assigned a letter grade of F, your grade          sheet will show the following error message, “Last date of attendance required for this grade.”
