1.2 Required Reporting
Required Reporting: There are four reports that are required for all instructional staff. These reports must be filled out via your my. fordham.edu account. Academic Records will contact you via your Fordham email with instructions when these reports are coming up. The reports and tentative due dates are noted below.
- Initial Student Attendance (identified as Last Date of Attendance on my.fordham.edu): the week following the end of add/drop (check the Academic Calendar for due date of Round 1, Last Date of Attendance);
- Midterm Grades for Freshmen and Students in Danger of Failing (identified as Midterm Grades on my.fordham.edu): the week following midterm week (check the Academic Calendar for due date of mid-semester evaluations);
- Late Semester Student Attendance (identified as Last Date of Attendance on my.fordham.edu): the eighth or ninth week of classes (check the Academic Calendar for due date of Round 2, Last Date of Attendance);
- Final Course Grades (identified as Final Grades on my.fordham.edu): begins the week of final exams, extending for fall grades through the University opening day in the spring semester, and for spring grades through commencement day in the spring semester (check the Academic Calendar for these events).
Please note that freshmen are to be assigned letter grades at midterm time, whereas upperclass and PCS students in danger of failing receive a numerical code indicating the nature of their deficiency. Freshmen are identified as such not by credits but by expected graduation term, which is given on the Mini Class List. Any student attending your course whose name is not on the attendance report should be advised to immediately contact their class dean to formalize their enrollment in the course. The student will not receive credit for the course unless their name is on the official course list.
In the event the student stops attending your course at any time during the semester, you must notify via email the Office of Academic Records (email@example.com) as well as the student’s class dean. The email should contain the student’s name, FIDN, the course subject/number/section, the CRN, and the student’s last date of attendance.
