Before you can take attendance, you must set up a class schedule. Click on the Class Schedule button. Complete the requested information and submit.
Next, click the Record Attendance button. Select a meeting date/time from the Meeting Times drop-down box. This creates attendance records for the selected date. The default is Present.

Attendance is visible to the student in BroncoConnect from the Courses area. Advisors can also view class attendance. FSU has set up automatic flags that are raised when a student has three and six unexcused absences in the same course. The flags will go to the student and to the student's advisor as well as other student success professionals connected with the student (e.g., coaches for student athletes).
