The Enrollment Validation Policy takes place every fall and spring semester. It impacts both undergraduate and graduate level students/classes. It applies to all full semester classes (16 week classes) and all regularly scheduled first-half and second-half classes (8 week classes). It applies to face-to-face, online, and hybrid classes.
The Enrollment Validation Policy does not apply to summer semester classes or "off-schedule" classes. In addition, some classes that do not have regular meeting times are exempt from EVP. These may include: dual credit, THRIVE, study abroad, IEP, continuing education, and zero-credit classes.
The EVP is heavily dependent upon communication between students and faculty. Therefore it is critically important that students check their student e-mail account and MyCentral announcements often during the week before classes begin and during the first several weeks of the semester.
The purposes of the enrollment validation policy (EVP) are:
What do students have to do for the enrollment validation policy (EVP)?
For face-to-face classes:
Attend each class on the first day the class is scheduled to meet. You can find your course start dates and meeting times in MyCentral. Go to the Student Services tab and click on Student Detail Schedule.
Make sure that the instructor has included you when they take attendance. If you arrive to class late, be sure to check in with the instructor before you leave.
If you are unable to attend on the first day, you must contact each class instructor prior to the first day to indicate your intention to continue enrollment. Find contact information for instructors in the directory. It is recommended that you both call and e-mail your instructors.
For online and hybrid classes:
Log into Blackboard and go into each online and hybrid class before noon on Wednesday of the first week of class. For each class you will need to mark that you plan to participate in the class. See the detailed instructions for deadlines and screen shots.
What happens if I am reported absent?
If you are reported as absent (in either a face-to-face or online/hybrid course) you will receive a computer generated e-mail notifying you that you will be dropped for nonattendance. You will receive a second e-mail after the drop has occurred. Drops will take place after noon on the Monday of the second week of classes.
If you are dropped and wish to get back into a course you will need permission for a late add. Only a department chair may give permission to enroll in a course after the enrollment period has ended.
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.
