Federal regulations require that you must ATTEND the classes for which aid is awarded. Verification of attendance is the process of having your professor indicate whether or not you have been in attendance. If you are NOT verified in attendance by faculty, your aid may be reduced or cancelled. You should be aware that your registration for classes that begin in the later part of the term also may result in a delay of your financial aid disbursement as attendance cannot be verified until the classes begin. Verification of attendance usually takes place during the first week of the class period and disbursement of aid happens in the second week.
