Online Attendance Policy

Robeson Community College believes that students must attend class if they are to be well prepared for the workplace. Online courses are no different from traditional classroom courses in this regard. Online students are subject to the same attendance policy and procedures as traditional students.  Please see the “Attendance Policy and Procedures” section of the RCC Student Catalog/Handbook.

To document the initial enrollment in an online course, students are required to complete an “Enrollment Activity Assignment”. This assignment MUST be completed by the date designated by the instructor in the course, or the student will be dropped as a “Never Attend” without the possibility of reinstatement.

Attendance in online courses is defined as active participation in the course as described in the individual course syllabus. Online courses will, at a minimum, have weekly assignments to record student participation, which can be documented by any or all of the following methods:

  • Completion of tests
  • Submission/completion of assignments
  • Participation in Discussion Forums

Students who fail to maintain active participation in an online course as defined in the course syllabus will be processed using the current attendance policy.
