It is important to read this Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) regarding what information you can share.

Identification Card Instructions    

Registration Policy:
Registration is required prior to the first class meeting. Late registration is NOT permitted. Once the first class meeting has occurred, registration for the class will not be allowed. Registration for ONLINE courses will NOT be permitted once the start date of the online course has passed. Schedule adjustments or "switching classes" after the class has met the first time is NOT allowable in most instances.

Student Attendance Policy:
Faculty should develop their own attendance policies and place them in their syllabi. Students are expected to attend all classes regularly. If absence from class is unavoidable, it is the student's responsibility to explain the absence to his instructor(s) and arrange to complete any work missed. If an instructor feels the number of accumulated absences is interfering with the student's progress and ability to successfully complete the course, the student may be dropped from the course without notice.

In open entry/open exit courses taught in a non-traditional manner, steady progress completion of course objectives is required of all students. Students no making normal progress in fulfilling course objectives may be dropped from the course without notice.

Grade and Attendance Information

WebAdvisor: At your training session, you will be taught how to use WebAdvisor. After that, you will have your userID and password that you will use to log in each time. You will be using WebAvisor to have access to your class schedule, check enrollments, class rosters, 10th day verifications, midterm verifications, withdrawals and grading.

  • Class rosters for English classes; 0900, 1001, 1205, Reading 0900 and 1008, Math classes between 0906, and 2001are checked for correct placement. You will be notified if the student did not meet the requirements to be in the class. English students may meet the requirement to enter the class, or may have an English Lab Component. See the Division Office for details.

It is imperative that the Verification/Report Forms be filled out and returned promptly since student's financial aid will be affected. It is the instructor's responsibility to make sure that all students attending class appear on the class roster.

Withdrawal Procedure:

Types of Withdraw:

  • Drops: Traditional courses (16 weeks): Student must drop on or before the 10th day of the term of the course in order to receive a 100% refund of tuition and fees, excluding a non-refundable $5.00 registration fee. Non-traditional courses (less than 16 weeks): The drop/refund period varies according to the length of class. Students must drop prior to the withdrawal date stated on their registration statement in order to receive a refund. The Cashier’s Office will issue refunds after the 10th day of the semester 
  • Instructor Initiated
  • Student Initiated

Withdrawals must be submitted through the Intranet – not through WebAdvisor.
Faculty needs to access the intranet. Select the link for Online Withdrawals. All the fields filled must be filled in completely.  If the student does not offer a reason, you can leave that portion blank. You will receive an email when the email has been submitted. To see if the student was withdrawn, you will need to check Colleague or WebAdvisor. If you receive an email and you have not submitted a withdrawal, contact the Records Office. It is highly recommended that the faculty member send the receipt copy to the student. This will help with communication.  Please note this link will be turned off on the last day for withdrawals because any withdrawals after that point will need the signature form the Dean. Those will be done on paper at this time.
