Online and Hybrid Course Enrollment Verification
Enrollment Verification (EV) is the process for checking student enrollment in courses at the start of the semester. In order to verify enrollment, the student must “enter” the course by the census date using the methods described below.
- In face-to-face (in-class) courses, students must physically attend a class meeting by the census date.
- In online (NT) courses, students must complete an Enrollment Verification activity by the census date.
- In hybrid (HY) courses, students must either physically attend a class meeting OR complete an Enrollment Verification activity by the census date.
Failure to “enter” the course by the census date will result in the student being dropped and assigned a grade of NA (never attended).
Distance Learning resources for faculty can be found on the Intranet under Distance Learning.
