GRADE ENTRY POLICIES

Students Not Enrolled but Attending Class

A student not on the roster is not offically enrolled. Please use your S.O.A.R. rosters to verify that students attending your class are officially enrolled. If the student is not on the S.O.A.R. roster, please DO NOT allow him/her to attend your class until they provide documentation verifying enrollment. Submitting the student's name to the Registrar's Officewill not add the student to the class. The student must complete a permission to add form and submit it to the Registrar's Office.

 

Students Not Attending Class (NA Grade)

To comply with the U.S> Department of Education regulations, the University must identify students who are not attending class. A grade of NA (Not Attending) should be issued to any student listed on the roster that did not attend. Additionally, this grade would be appropriate for any student who stopped attending prior to graded assignments. Non-compliance with this policy will jeopardize federal funding for financial aid purposes.

The Registrar's and Financial Aid Offices will send correspondence to all students not attending classes. Students have the responsibility to withdraw from these classes by completing a Drop Form or withdrawing from the University. Failure to do so will result in a grade of "F" or "NA" for each class the student did not attend.
