As you are aware, financial aid that is awarded to students who enroll in but do not attend classes must be returned to the government. In order to ensure this occurs, which will safeguard Ramapo’s eligibility to participate in Title IV funding, faculty should report “No Show” students to the Office of the Registrar. Note that any student listed on your class roster who does not “attend any classes” (i.e., does not show up for in-person class meetings, does not join WebEx class sessions, does not respond to any emails, and does not log in to your course in Canvas) by the official 10th day of classes, which is Tuesday, September 14th, is to be considered a No Show. In order to accurately report these students, you are being asked to take attendance during the first ten days of the semester from September 1 through September 14.
On Wednesday, September 15th, you will receive on email communication through your Ramapo email account from Connect with instructions on how to access the “No Show Report” through Outstanding Reports link. You will have one report for each of your CRN/course section(s) you are teaching. You will have until Monday, September 20th to respond. This means that if you are responsible for four CRN’s, you will have four reports to complete.
