Class Rosters and Attendance Verification
ATTENDANCE VERIFICATION FORM
ON OR BEFORE
September 13, 2018
Class Rosters are viewable by using the Faculty Information functions available through the MarywoodYou Portal which may be accessed via the Marywood website at http://www.marwood.edu. These rosters will provide accurate and current information regarding the enrollees in your course(s) on an ongoing basis. All faculty are asked to verify attendance in their classes using the online listing of students.
As I am sure you are aware, Marywood University must, in order to be compliant with federal regulation, collect information regarding student attendance. We are required to track cases both where a student does not report to class, as well as, those students who subsequently discontinue attendance along with the last date on which they appeared. In addition, Marywood practice dictates that in cases where a student fails to report to class the registration for that course will be canceled. Students who have attended (even once) are responsible for processing a withdrawal from the course. We rely on you for accurate attendance information as there are academic and financial consequences for both the student and University. Your decisions in this regard cannot be arbitrary; we have to depend on you for the facts.
The Faculty Attendance Form is submitted online through the MarywoodYou Portal. The link is on the left of the page immediately above the Daily Maintenance notice. All faculty are asked to complete and submit this online form, as soon as possible, but definitely by September 13, 2018.
All faculty should use the Faculty Attendance form to indicate the following:
- Students who were “no shows” for a class. Do not notate it on the WebAdvisor Class Roster. It is important that we have this information as soon as possible so that we can act to remove the student.
- Students who stopped coming to class along with the last date of attendance. Do not notate it on the WebAdvisor Class Roster.
- Students who are attending but do not appear on the Class Roster. Do not notate it on the WebAdvisor Class Roster.
Note: If a student comes to class who was not on your list when last accessed, send the student to the Registrar’s Office to complete the process. If the student indicates that he/she has registered for the class, the student may be allowed to remain in class. You can later access your class list on-line to verify that any student who is not on your list is properly enrolled. If the student does not appear on the list he/she should be directed to the Registrar’s Office prior to the next class meeting.
If any students discontinue attending subsequent to the initial submission faculty should forward that information by resubmitting the online Attendance Verification form. Attendance will again be surveyed for all courses at mid-term. Thank you for your cooperation. We know that our work is made easier with your support.
