If a student actually attended or participated your class at least once, but was marked absent on the VOE roster by mistake, you can appeal to the registrar for reinstatement; in this case, please see item (12) under Faculty Resources on the Department webpage. The submitted e-folder must show that the student attended at least once and should be given, together with a completed Grade Update form, to the department COA. If the student was marked absent due to a clerical error, the student can be reinstated; however, the corrected e-folder showing that the student attended and/or participated in at least one session, together with a completed Grade Update form, must be submitted to the department COA. If the student has compelling reasons why they were not in class, they can appeal for reinstatement, but they will need a compelling statement of explanation and evidence. In the latter case, the decision will be made by the Registrar, not by the department. The Grade Update form may be found here.

Students may be dropped from a class and/or issued a WN if the instructor does not mark them 'present' during the first few class sessions. If this happens due to an error, the instructor should follow the instructions, Items (12) and (13), as shown above. The instructor should file appropriate forms and documents with the Business Department COA. Students may appeal WU and WF grades by filing this form: with the City Tech Committee on Course and Standards, as indicated on the form.
