Enrollment Verification

Students must verify their enrollment one of two ways in a course.

  • Traditional Courses – Students must attend class by the census date. (Example: Courses with an 0TR01, 0TR02, 0TR03, etc.. section are traditional/Face-to Face)
  • Online Courses – Students must complete the Mandatory Online Course Assessment (MOCA) in Moodle by the census date to be counted enrolled for the course. (Example: Courses with an 0IN01, 1IN01, 0IN02, 1IN02 etc.. section are Online)
  • Blended and Hybrid Courses – Students must complete a Syllabus Acknowledgement Quiz, or attend class by the census date. (Example: Courses with 1HB01, 1BL01, 1HB02, 1BL02, etc.. are Hybrid or Blended.)

The census date is the 10% point of the course based on the start and end date of the course in question. Every course does not have the same census date!

Failure to attend class, or complete an online assignment, will result in the student being dropped from the course.
