Class Attendance & Participation

Class Attendance

Attendance verification for financial aid purposes is automatically sent to your school. Attendance is sent on the 4th day, the 9th day and the 14th day of the semester and at the 50% and 60% milestone dates in the semester.

You MUST complete the Student Participation Survey for each course that you are enrolled in during the first 14 days of the semester. 

Class Participation

Generally, you are expected to participate in all interactive aspects of the course. For example, you must communicate with other students via emails and discussion board exchanges. You are expected to communicate with your instructor and check the course each day for announcements. You must actively participate in threaded discussion events by posting a response. Students are expected to work at a pace conducive to collaborative learning - that is, don't work too far ahead or too far behind the group. The class is designed to support student interaction. You will be responsible for meeting all deadlines. Refer to the course syllabus for specifics regarding instructor expectations about your participation. 

Verifying Attendance

The Student Participation Survey is one of the most important surveys you'll take as an online student.  It records your attendance and participation in a course and may be tied to the release of your financial aid.

ALL STUDENTS taking TN eCampus classes MUST complete the Student Participation Survey in order to be reported as attending classes. Students may be automatically dropped from a class if the survey is not completed on time. For some students, completing the Student Participation Survey will also release financial aid.  Attendance verification is automatically sent to schools on the 4th, 9th, and 14th day of the semester.

The Student Participation Survey MUST be completed by the 14th day of class (including weekends).

You can find step-by-step directions for completing the survey in our Knowledge Books.
