Attendance Accounting Manual


The attendance accounting manual has been designed to assist faculty in reporting student attendance in college classes. The procedures described are in compliance with Title 5, Section 58030 of the California Administrative Education Code which states, “The governing board of each community college district shall adopt procedures that will document all course enrollment, attendance, and disenrollment information required by the provisions of this chapter.”

The attendance accounting manual includes information including add and drop procedures, grading, rosters, and other related policies and procedures. Therefore it is highly recommended that you review the attendance manual periodically to ensure you are following procedures.  

You will also find that a faculty bulletin entitled “Attendance Accounting Schedule” will be distributed online prior to the beginning of each semester or summer session which will outline key deadline dates.
