Attendance Verification Frequently Asked Questions:

  1. What should I tell my students about the Attendance Verification Policy?

    Please tell students that this policy enables the university to 1) comply with U.S. Department of Education financial aid regulations for reporting on students’ attendance, and 2) remind students to drop a class they no longer intend to take in time to avoid tuition charges.
  2. How do I verify attendance in an on-line class?

    The policy leaves it up to each faculty member to determine what constitutes “attendance.” Here are some examples of how you could check that students have begun attending an on-line course:

    • Ask students to introduce themselves through a post to the discussion group for the class.
    • Ask students to participate in an introductory on-line discussion.
    • Ask students to email you acknowledging their presence.
    • If available, use features in the learning management systems to determine who has logged on to various portions of your website.

    We will add more examples to this list as we collect them from faculty.

  3. How do I verify attendance in a very large class?

    • Pass around a sign-in sheet.
    • Ask students to complete a brief in-class writing assignment the first day of class.
    • Ask students to introduce themselves to the class on the discussion board.
