No Show

Students are reported to the registrar as a no show if they fail to attend class before the no show date established in the Academic Calendar. A no show for online classes is defined as a student who does not participate in a class activity as defined by the instructor before the no show date. Logging into the class alone does not constitute attendance.

Remember: merely logging in to the class does not constitute attendance or academic contact. Consult your instructor for specific dates which they expect attendance/academic activity, and to ensure you have completed the necessary work to meet their attendance policy.

Students who fail to contact their instructor are completely dropped from the class as if they had never enrolled in it. There may be serious financial aid consequences for students who are receiving financial aid, since it will reduce the number of enrolled credit hours. If students believe their instructor reported them as a no show in error, they must contact the instructor immediately to resolve the issue.

If you are a financial aid recipient, and you are reported as a no-show, you will have your aid adjusted to reflect the actual number of credits for the courses you are attending. When you have received financial aid, and are dropped as a no-show, the college must return that portion of funding to the federal government.

If you were reported in error and reinstated, aid will again be adjusted based on your enrollment status and eligibility.
