Reporting No-shows

Dear CCCOnline Faculty;

Welcome to Fall Semester!

We have a new procedure this term for reporting students who are “no-shows” and are asking for your assistance in identifying and reporting “no show” students in your courses.

A “no-show” student is any student who has not yet logged into their course or communicated with you in some way, either through e-mail, phone or in the course itself before September 9. If a student has logged into your course once but made no postings, either through e-mail or discussions, or submitted no assignments or other course work, they can be considered a “no-show”. If you have any questions about the status of a particular student, please feel free to contact me.

The deadline for reporting “no-show” students is September 9, 2008.

Once you have reported a student as a “no-show”, they may be dropped from your course, however, not all colleges drop “no-show” students, so some students may remain on your roster. These students will need to be given an appropriate grade, probably an “F”, at the end of the term.

To report a student as a “no-show”, please follow the steps below.

  1. Go to your class roster here,
  2. Enter your Username and Password (the same you use for logging into Vista)
  3. Select the course from the list (if a course is missing, please contact Frank Vazquez at
  4. Find the correct student
  5. Place a check in the box under the “No Show” column, there is no “submit” button, you can just check the box
  6. Return to the home page to select another course is appropriate

This information will be reported to the student’s home college.

**Some colleges will then drop the students, but not all colleges drop no-show students, so some students may remain on your roster.

If a student comes back after you have reported them, just send me an e-mail and I will update the student’s record.

Thank you for your time and your support!!
