my.metro: Non-Attendance Reporting

  • The purpose of the Attendance Verification and Non-Attendance Reporting is to ensure Federal Title IV regulations are adhered to with respect to a student's enrollment level for the purpose of calculating and paying financial aid.
  • The non-attendance report process is intended for faculty to complete within the first 2 weeks of the semester - by verifying active engagement of students in your course.
  • Students reported as not being active within the first 2 weeks of the semester will be administratively dropped without tuition penalty; this includes students receiving financial aid - no funds will be disbursed.
  • The non-attendance report must be completed for ALL courses. 
  • Instructors access Non-Attendance reporting from my.metro.
  • Non-attendance application update, starting summer 2021, will no longer display withdrawn students.
