The attendance policy of the university requires instructors of record to take attendance at least once during the first eight days of the fall and spring semester.
As we all know, attendance in class is a key factor in students’ success. Your reporting of student attendance not only provides the university with the opportunity to direct non-attending students to the proper campus resources for assistance but it also ensures our compliance with federal financial aid Title IV legislation.
UW-Stevens Point has an obligation to verify at the start of a course that Financial Aid recipients are in attendance. To assist instructors of record with this Federal reporting process, an Attendance Roster has been created in the myCourses module of myPoint. The following three attendance reporting options are available to instructors:
- Attending (pre-assigned to all students),
- Never Attended, and
- Last Attended On Date.

NOTE: During the first eight days of the term, any student reported as "Never Attended" will be administratively dropped from the section within the next 1 to 2 business days. After the eighth day of the term, students will NOT be administratively dropped but the Attendance Roster may still be used to report students that have stopped attending class. The Enrollment Services Center will email all students reported as never attending or stopped attending.
If a student is administratively dropped from a course, reinstatement into the same section or course is NOT guaranteed. To be reinstated, the student MUST submit a completed Add/Drop Form to the Enrollment Services Center (106 SSC) or the instructor may email the Enrollment Services Center at firstname.lastname@example.org (715-346-3300).
