Enrollment Validation Information for Students
The enrollment validation policy applies to any class beginning on or after August 20, to include second 1/2 semester courses. It does not apply to hybrid or online courses.
The purposes of the enrollment validation requirement are:
- To promote academic success by establishing a pattern of regular class attendance
- To improve your access to courses by making seats available in full classes as students who do not plan to attend withdraw from classes, and
- To reduce educational costs by facilitating University compliance with federal financial aid regulations.
To avoid being dropped from your classes, you must validate enrollment in each class in one of the following two ways:
- Preferred: Attend each class on the first day the class is scheduled to meet. Or
- Alternate: If you are unable to attend on the first day, you must contact each class instructor prior to the first class day to indicate your intention to continue enrollment. Contact may be accomplished by email. Find contact information for instructors at http://www.ucmo.edu/search/.
If you miss the first day of class and are reported as absent you will receive a computer generated e-mail notifying you that you are being dropped for nonattendance. If you wish to remain in the course, you will have until 12:00 noon on the day the following the first day of that class to contact your instructor asking to not be dropped. Find contact information for instructors at http://www.ucmo.edu/search/. If you do not contact your instructor, you will receive a second e-mail after your class(es) have been dropped. It will be your responsibility to re-enroll in the course if desired. If the course is full, use the waitlist option (http://www.ucmo.edu/registrar/enrollment/waitlist.cfm). Only a department chair may give permission to enroll in a full class.
This procedure is heavily dependent upon communication between students and faculty. Therefore it is critically important that students check their UCMO student email account and MyCentral announcements often during the week before classes begin and during the first several weeks of the semester.
DO NOT ASSUME THAT AN INSTRUCTOR HAS REPORTED AN ABSENCE. ENROLLMENT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE STUDENT. STUDENTS WHO FAIL TO DROP THE CLASS WILL BE HELD FINANCIALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CLASS AND WILL RECEIVE A GRADE OF “F” IN THE CLASS.
