Last Date of Attendance
Federal regulations require faculty to report attendance information for students who have stopped attending class or those who never attended. A student who is reported to have stopped attending will be assigned a grade of FW or NC for that class, and a student who is reported to have never attended will be assigned a grade of FN or NC. Financial aid may be reduced or cancelled based on student attendance information.
Prior to the course withdrawal deadline, students may visit the Records Office to change an FN, FW or NC grade to a W (withdrawal). The last date of attendance that was reported by faculty will remain unchanged, so the impact on the student's financial aid award (that occurred when the instructor reported the last date of attendance) for that semester will remain unchanged, as well.
