A no-show is a student who does not attend class or make any attempt to contact his or her instructor during the first full week of the semester.
You are expected to attend class beginning the first day of the semester. If you are absent from the first class meeting, it is your responsibility to contact your instructor and confirm that you intend to be a student in his or her class. Students taking online courses must log onto the online course or communicate with the course instructors via e-mail or phone.
Students who attend at least one class session, log onto the online Course and complete an academic assignment in the first 5 days, or meet with instructors of self-directed or individualized instruction courses during the first five days of the semester, but later stop attending classes are not considered no shows.
Consequences of Being a No-Show
The Registration and Records Office will remove no-show students from their classes, and instructors will not allow these students to attend classes during the second or subsequent weeks of the semester.
The Financial Aid Office will not award aid benefits for classes in which instructors report students as no-shows. The Financial Aid Office may also require students to repay all or a portion of the HOPE or Pell funds they received for the semester.
