Scholarships & Financial Aid has worked with EIS and ITS to create the mechanism to facilitate documenting student last date of attendance at an academically-related activity. Federal student aid regulations require the University to calculate financial aid earned by students with non-passing grades (F-Failing, U- Unsatisfactory, or I-Incomplete). Based on information obtained from course instructors, adjustments to or cancellation of financial aid awards may be necessary. This requirement applies to undergraduate, graduate, and professional students alike.

After grade submission whether through Howdy or eCampus, a link will be available within the Howdy Roster view (grade submission page) to select one of three Last Date of Attendance (LDA) options for students assigned non-passing grades (F, I, U):

  • Attended entire semester
  • Never attended/no attendance documented
  • Last date of attendance known (fill in date)

See Last Date of Attendance Entry via Howdy for step-by-step instructions
