Real-time class roll
Online Services shows accurate, up-to-date enrollments, giving faculty access to real-time class enrollment information. It is also the entry site for grade submissions. At the request of faculty, all preliminary and official class rosters are available online. Your online preliminary class roster includes student course and skill area pre-requisite information along with the up-to-date enrollment information. Class rosters are available beginning with the first day of registration each semester.
Federal financial aid regulations mandate that institutions of higher education be able to document attendance for all students who are receiving financial aid. Awarding of aid and determination of possible repayment for non‐attendance requires this information.
Each semester, by the official reporting date for your teaching sessions (i.e. 16‐week, 8‐week, 12‐week, etc.), you will need to certify each of your class rosters, indicating the attendance status for each student enrolled in the class.
Last date of attendance on final grade roster
Each semester, you are required to enter the last date of attendance for each student on the final grade roster, for whom a grade of 'F' is being awarded. This doesn't apply to any student you previously reported as 'never attended' on your class roster. Details about how to enter a grade and last date of attendance are below in the "Procedures and FAQ" section.
We appreciate your assistance to help ensure that the college is meeting these federal mandates. As the education budget continues to be reduced, the Department of Education is implementing additional measures to ensure that federal tax dollars are being appropriately used for students who are attending and making progress toward their educational goals. Approximately 44% of ACC students receive some form of financial aid; unfortunately, many students are receiving thousands of dollars in aid and are never attending or participating in any class activities. By better managing how monies are awarded, ACC will be able to offer assistance to those students in need who are legitimately pursuing their education.
