First-Week Attendance

Students are expected to attend all classes from the first day of the semester on, including those for which they are on a waitlist. Those who, during the first five days of the semester, do not attend a class for which they are registered risk losing their right to remain in the course. A faculty member has the prerogative, if published, of de-registering students not in attendance, particularly if others are seeking to add the course. To avoid an NR (No Record) on the transcript, students must take responsibility for dropping a course through the SOLAR System or in person at the Registrar's Office before the end of the ninth week of classes.

To remain in compliance with federal regulations involving financial aid for our students, Stony Brook University must determine if a student maintains eligibility for “Title IV Financial Aid.” Such eligibility is determined in part by a student’s attendance in class.  More information and instructions on how to submit this information may be found at this link:  http://www.stonybrook.edu/commcms/registrar/policies/tracking.html
