Welcome to the Summer 2014 Term!

It is that time of year again when we would appreciate your confirming student attendance so we can see just how many students are coming to class. As usual, we will forward a memo to your MCC e-mail account outlining the attendance process for the term.

You need to enter attendance for every student enrolled in your course(s). Please enter this data AFTER the census date of the course. This is very important because census date is the magic date when students who attend classes on or after census are (a) permitted to collect their financial aid; and (b) are counted in our enrollment based funding calculations. Therefore, you need to complete your attendance rosters AFTER your course census date. Your census date is clearly noted in the personal attendance memo being sent to your e-mail account. It is also noted on the class rosters sent periodically to your e-mail account. These dates are also available on the MCC web page at

I have enclosed some instructions and a Frequently Asked Questions listing to try to answer any questions you might have. In addition, I have included a video link (see below), which provides instruction on how to enter your attendance. However, if you find yourself getting frustrated with the attendance entries, send me or Lyn MacGregor an email so we can help you.

Attendance for courses with a census date of 6/12/2014 or earlier should be completed in Banner by Monday, June 16th.  Courses with a census date after 6/12/2014 will need the attendance to be reported by Tuesday, July 22nd. 

Attendance reporting is a required task, just like grading. We need attendance in order to issue financial aid to students. So, please jot your census date(s) on your calendar. Keep an eye on your e-mail and your MYMCC because I will send gentle reminders as the date gets closer.

Call if you have any questions. Lyn MacGregor can be reached at <""> or by phone at 292-2237. We are happy to help.
