Records and Registration
The College expects students to attend classes
and complete assignments, including assignments
missed due to absence. Each instructor develops
and enforces the attendance requirements for each
course. Students who cannot attend a class must notify
the course instructor. In cases of extended illness,
students must also notify the Dean of Student Life.
Students who miss class due to military obligations
must notify the College’s VA Certifying Official in
the Registrar’s Office.
Student Failure to Start
Northeast Community College is required to
verify the enrollment and participation of students
who participate in Federal Title IV student aid
programs and/or who receive educational benefits
through alternate funding sources. Students who
fail to start a class and never complete an assignment
will be considered a no show in the course and will
be reported for non-attendance by Northeast faculty.
- Students who are considered a no show will
be administratively withdrawn from the course and
the student’s financial aid will be adjusted to reflect
eligibility only for those courses attended.
- Students who have been administratively withdrawn
from a course will have the course and all tuition
and fees associated with the course removed from
their record; a registration hold will also be placed
on their account. Students who are administratively
withdrawn will receive email notification from the
- Students who have not had any active participation
in a course in the first two weeks of the term
will not be allowed to re-enroll in the course. In the
event that the student can prove he/she had active
participation within the first two weeks, the student
must appeal to the course instructor to be re-enrolled.
All appeals will be reviewed within five consecutive
calendar days by College Committee; the student
will be notified of Committee decision. Prior to the
start of the next enrollment period, the student will
be required to meet with a General Advisor from
the Advising & Academic Support Center to have
the registration hold removed from his/her account.
Students Who Stop Attending
Students are expected to follow the College’s
Drop/Withdrawal procedures. Students who stop
attending a course after attendance has been established
must drop the course and/or withdraw from
the term. Stopping attendance during a term is
defined as not actively participating in a course for
14 consecutive calendar days. Stopping attendance
does not cancel tuition charges or prevent the course
and grade from appearing on the student’s academic
record. Students who have stopped attending a course
and fail to officially drop the course will be assigned
a “UF” (Unearned “F”) grade.
- A “UF” grade is counted as a failure in the calculation
of grade point average and academic standing.
- A student who is assigned a “UF” grade will not
be allowed to return to the class for the current term.
- The issuance of a “UF” grade will activate
re-evaluation of the student’s financial aid and may
result in repayment as noted in the Return to Title
