All students shall engage in academically related activities in order to be eligible for federal (Title IV) student aid. All instructors of record shall verify their course rosters at designated times during each semester for such activity. This information
will assist IUP personnel in Financial Aid and Bursar with the calculations of aid that may be awarded and/or returned.
All instructors of record must verify in the student system that students on their course rosters have participated in academically related activities immediately after the drop/add period, when mid-term grades are recorded, and when final grades are
Immediately after drop/add, verification of course rosters affirms that the students listed have been involved in academically related activities associated with the course. For online courses, the faculty member shall advise students to log into the
course and begin course activity during the add/drop period.
Mid-term and final grades must be recorded in the student system for all students with earned and unearned failing grades. Instructors must determine if the failure was based on performance (“F”) or non-participation (“N”), respectively, and must also
record the last known date of participation in academically related activities if the student receives an unearned failing grade (“N”).
Students will be responsible for engaging in academically related activities in their courses. Instructors will record participation at the end of the drop/add period. For students failing the course at mid-term and/or finals, instructors will record
whether or not the failing grade was due to performance or non-performance (earned or unearned). If the failure was due to nonparticipation, the last known date of the student’s participation in academically related activities will be reported. IUP
personnel in Financial Aid and the Bursar will use the recorded information to determine the amount of Title IV student aid may be awarded and/or returned.
