(New No-Show Procedures, effective Fall 2013)
At issue are Financial Aid recipients who become ineligible for funds by not attending at least one class session. The Registrar, Brenda Hogan, will send students who do not attend at least one class session are NOT entitled to keep the financial aid award. When these students are not reported as a no-show in a timely manner (that is before Financial Aid Remaining Balance funds are disbursed), both the College and the student may incur fiscal liability for the portion of the award that the student is no longer eligible to receive. The revised no-show reporting procedures will better position MGA to adjust financial aid awards before remaining balance funds are issued thereby eliminating liability for both the College and the student.
Faculty reporting of no-shows begins at 4:30 on the fifth day of class and lasts until noon of the eighth day of class (unless otherwise posted). Registrar will send emails to Faculty notifying them of the exact dates.
Please be reminded that only students who have never attended a single class (or in the case of an online class, the student has never communicated with the instructor) should be reported as a no-show. If a student attends one class but is no longer attending, DO NOT report that student as a no-show.
Students reported as no-show will not receive their financial aid remaining balance funds. If a student attends your class after you report or if you find that you have made an error, you can go back into the class roll and make the correction while reporting is open. Once reporting closes, the only way to correct the error is to email, Jed Edge in the Registrar’s Office-Cochran at .
Once No-Show reporting closes the reported class(es) will be dropped from the student’s schedule by the Registrar’s Office. The No-Show class will be coded by the Registrar’s Office with a “NS” in the BANNER registration form (SFAREGS). The student is no longer enrolled in the class and is not charged for the class reported as a NO-SHOW. All refunds, if appropriate, will be applied to the student’s account by the Bursar’s Office.
