How do I manage my attendance the first two week of class?

As a faculty member at SLCC you will soon realize your attendance roll prior to classes starting may look much different a week to ten days later. Here are some helpful hints to remember:

Viewing Your Class List(s)

You can view your class list two ways: through Canvas, or through MySLCC.

Add Period

All registration adds must be completed within the seven business-day Add Period using the registration portal. It is the responsibility of the student to add classes and add waitlist seating through the SLCC student portal.

Administrative Drop for Non-Attendance

Students who have not shown up or made contact with the faculty member by the second class meeting (or first class meeting for classes that meet once per week) may be administratively dropped. For online classes, students are required to log into online classes within the first five days of the term. The administrative drop process opens seats for students waiting to register for the class. Faculty may administratively drop students through the Faculty Tab during the seven business-day Add Period. Please refer to the Administrative Drop Policy in the SLCC General Catalog.

Online administrative drop process is available on Faculty Tab through the published DROP deadline.

  1. Select Registration Add/Drop from the Classroom Management menu.
  2. Select the term and Submit.
  3. Enter the Student ID (Use capital “S”) or name of the student you are dropping.
  4. Check the name to make sure you have the correct student. If correct, click Submit. If not, click the “Back” button and re-enter the Student ID.
  5. Under the student’s “Current Schedule,” select Drop/Web on the drop-down menu next to the class you intend to drop, and click Submit Changes.
  6. The dropped class should no longer appear on the student’s schedule.
  7. To perform another transaction, click menu item at the bottom of the screen or Close this Window to exit.

Waitlist Function

The waitlist option is available for most courses filled to capacity. Waitlist caps are set at 20% of class capacity. Faculty may view their course section waitlists through the MySLCC Faculty Tab and may communicate with the waitlisted students through email. As long as the waitlist is operating, students outside of the waitlist cannot enroll in a course. Allow the waitlist function to operate as intended. The waitlist provides an instrument that allows students to register in an equitable registration process. The waitlist is available through the seven business-day Add Period.


  • Students registering for a closed class will be offered the opportunity to be put on a Waitlist.
  • Students on the waitlist are not officially registered in the class.
  • When a registered student drops a seat in a closed class, the waitlisted student will be notified by SLCC email.
  • Once notified by email that a seat is available, the waitlisted student has 24 hours to register for the course.
  • If registration is not finalized within the 24 hour period, the student is dropped from the waitlist. The next waitlisted student is notified by email that a seat is available.
  • Students are offered an open seat based on their waitlist position.

Faculty may email the waitlisted students individually by clicking the email icon on the right side of the screen. The email option allows faculty to communicate pertinent information to waitlisted students. Waitlisted students will attend the first day of class to receive further instruction from the faculty member. Faculty members will determine if the waitlisted students will continue to attend.
