Class rosters are available in Self-Service and are emailed by the Academic Advising and Registration Office (AARO) to the Program Managers at the beginning of the semester for distribution to their faculty. Rosters provide the following information: student ID number, student name, telephone number (local phone number will be printed, if available; otherwise the permanent phone number will be printed), Veterans Administration status, major, class (indicated as CLS, this indicates whether the student is a freshman, sophomore, etc.), credits earned for this class, add/drop date
To be in compliance with the U.S. Department of Education regulations, faculty must record attendance during each class period and Academic Affairs must monitor attendance records every day for the first fourteen days of the semester. This requirement applies to all classes, on campus, online, internships, and independent study.
Regular class attendance is essential for learning and academic success. Students are expected to attend all class meetings, on time and for the full duration, and be prepared to work on that day’s assignment. Faculty are responsible for establishing an attendance policy for each of their classes and for outlining that policy on the course syllabus. Students are responsible for knowing the attendance policy for their class and adhering to those requirements. Exceptions to an instructor’s attendance policy should be discussed with that instructor.
CCS students using veterans’ benefits will have attendance monitored throughout the semester for reporting purposes to the Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA).
The first week of each semester is an add/drop period during which students may drop courses for which they previously registered or register for new courses with no penalty. After the add/drop period instructors must access their attendance roster online. Instructors are required to maintain attendance records electronically, which must be submitted at the end of the semester along with final grades. The roster includes all students registered in your class(es) through the end of the add/drop period.
If there is a person in class who is NOT on the class roster, it means the student is NOT REGISTERED for the class. It is imperative that faculty members immediately send the student to the Academic Advising and Registration office. Students are not permitted to be in class unless they have officially registered for that class.
Faculty will begin to receive a weekly “drop notice” via email to inform them of any student who has officially withdrawn from their class(es). If there is a student listed on your roster who is not attending class, faculty members must contact the Academic Advising and Registration Office, and they will inquire why they have not been attending.
In addition, faculty members may notice a “V” next to the names of some students on the class roster. This means the students receive benefits from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. The VA requires attendance rosters, and it is the instructor’s responsibility to monitor this. The Academic Advising and Registration Office must report non-attendance of these students to the VA within 30 days of the last date of attendance. Instructors must report any “V” student who has missed three (3) weeks of class as soon as they miss the third week.
