Class Attendance Policies

Department of education requirements

Faculty at UT Arlington are not required to take attendance in their courses. However, the U.S. Department of Education does require that the University have a mechanism in place to mark when Federal Student Aid recipients "begin attendance in a course."

UT Arlington requirements

UT Arlington uses final grade rosters to collect information identifying when Federal Student Aid recipients "begin attendance in a course." Specifically, when assigning a student a grade of F, faculty must report the last date a student attended their class based on evidence such as a test, participation in a class project or presentation, or an engagement online via Blackboard. The Institution's procedure requirement when an "F" is recorded is available here.
