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. Only students who are enrolled in the class section may attend the class. 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. 

Attendance certification

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.

Note: Please also see Attendance Certification: Questions and Answers.

Certification deadline

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 attendance for all of your students on each of your class rosters, indicating their attendance status. Faculty should review and re-certify their rosters one day prior to the certification date, to ensure that any students who have been late added to the class after it started are also certified by the deadline.  Each certification deadline date ends at 11:59 p.m.

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.  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.

Questions concerning attendance certification and last date of attendance policies may be directed to Financial Aid.

Attendance Certification: Questions and Answers

Grade Submission

Faculty are responsible for the timely submission of final grades after the conclusion of each applicable teaching session. All official grades are entered into the Grade Roster in Faculty Online Services for each student enrolled in the section at the time grades are due. Grades are due no later than 5 p.m. on the third business day after the end of the session. Grade submission deadlines are found on the semester links at the top of this page. 

After grades are posted, faculty must request a grade change using the Grade Change Request Form, which may be obtained in faculty departmental offices and any campus Admissions and Records office. The form must be approved by the department chair, who will forward the form to Admissions and Records for processing.
