Automated Attendance Tracking System
A card reader is an automated system that collects class attendance by students swiping their DeVry ID cards for every scheduled lecture and lab session. The card readers are conveniently located in each classroom and lab. Additional individual instructor policies for determining tardiness and absence are outlined in course syllabi.
Remember to swipe your card for every class you attend. Many students have shown absences (especially in labs) for classes that they have been attending because they have forgotten to swipe. Please remember to swipe your card for lecture and lab attendance.
If you forget to swipe your card, you may request that your instructor submit an 'Attendance Revision Form' to update your attendance. Check with your instructors (or course syllabus) to find out whether or not their attendance recording policy will allow for modifications after the class session has been conducted.
Please do not get into the habit of swiping more than one card. It is in your own best interest to be the one in control of your ID card and your attendance record. Swiping your classmates' cards can be considered a violation of Article III of the student code of conduct and is subject to the disciplinary actions outlined in Article V of the Student Handbook.
Students are not allowed to use an instructor's ID code or card to record attendance for a class. This is for your protection. If the instructor is running late, please wait for the instructor to show and swipe their Faculty ID card, this captures all card swipe activity for the class. If the instructor misses the operating window of the reader, attendance will be recorded by hand via the instructor. If an instructor is going to be absent, there will be someone from Academics that will come into the classroom and enter the Faculty ID code so that attending students card swipe activity (attendance) is recorded for the class session.
Manual entries are not accepted. If you do not have your student ID card or if your card will not accept, please inform your instructor. If your student ID card does not work in any classroom, please go to Student Central, Room 110 to have it replaced.
