Summer 2015 Attendance

Welcome to the summer 2015 term! 

As you know, this is the time of year when we’d appreciate your confirming student attendance so we can see just how many students are coming to class.  We have sent a memo to your MCC e-mail account outlining the attendance process for the term.  We have made no major changes, so if you have done this before ---- you should breeze through it this 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.  Why?  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.  So, you need to complete your attendance rosters AFTER your course census date.  Your census date is clearly noted in the personal attendance memo 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

If you find yourself struggling with the attendance entries, close the Banner window, take a deep breath and send me an e-mail.  We can help you.  No need to struggle alone.

Attendance for courses with a census date of 6/2/15 or earlier should be completed in Banner by Tuesday, June 16th.   

Remember that attendance processing is a required task, just like grading.  We need attendance in order to issue financial aid to students.  So, please jot the June 16th deadline on your calendar.  And keep an eye on your e-mail because I will send gentle reminders as the date gets closer. 

Contact us if you have any questions.  Lyn MacGregor <> or Anne Lanzafame <> can assist you in this process.  Or you can call us at 292-2300, x0 and ask for Lyn, Anne or me. We are happy to help.
