No Show Instructions and Verifying Roster

Instructors must verify course rosters for each assigned section even when all students are attending class

If all students are attending, follow directions below and mark "the no shows are recorded and the roster is complete".
Note: Students in face-to-face classes are defined as “no show” if they fail to attend all class meetings. To identify no shows in online classes, instructors should require some online activity during the first week (7 days) of class. Completion of the activity indicates attendance. For example, instructors might ask students to (1) introduce themselves in an online discussion forum, (2) complete a quiz over the course syllabus, (3) complete a diagnostic test, or (4) submit a writing sample.

Please Note: Merely logging in to an online class does NOT count as attendance.


1. The Faculty Center should display the My Schedule page as soon as you login to PeopleSoft and click the “Faculty Center” button. If it does not, you may navigate to it by selecting Main Menu, Self Service, Faculty Center, My Schedule.
