No Show Reporting

Atlanta Metropolitan State College has a "No-Show" Reporting (Attendance Verification) policy. This policy is to comply with Federal Financial Aid regulations. Financial Aid recipients at Atlanta Metropolitan State College may become ineligible for funds by not attending class session (per enrolled course). Students who do not complete Mandatory Attendance Assignments and attend class sessions are NOT entitled to keep their financial aid award. The Registrar's Office will notify the students and faculty when the Attendance Verification Period has opened.

The established "No-Show" Reporting (Attendance Verification) procedure will enable Atlanta Metropolitan State College to adjust financial aid awards before funds are issued to students (thereby eliminating liability for both the College and the student). A student reported as a non-attending in a course must seek the approval of the instructor in order to be reinstated. When the student is approved to be reinstated into the course, the instructor shall initiate the electronic form for reinstatement to the students. The Office of Registrar will notify students when course reinstatement process has been completed during Reinstatement Period.

Faculty will consider Reinstatements based on criteria below:

The student can demonstrate compelling reason (s) that have prevented attendance and the instructor believes that there is strong probability that the student can catch up in the class.


The instructor made an error and the student was in attendance prior to being dropped.
