Reporting Absences

The Reporting Absences functionality is only available during the time frame when absence reporting is required. You will not be able to access this feature at other times.

From the drop-down menu, select a term. Click Submit.

A listing of all your course sections for the semester (except contract courses) will be displayed. Absences will have to be reported for all course sections in the list. Choose the section that you want to report absences for, by checking the box next to it. Click Submit.

If you have no students who have Never Attended, check the No Absences To Report – check here box at the top of the page and click Submit.

Once you have reported absences, (by checking any student in the class as Never Attended or by checking No Absences To Report) the next time you visit the roster you will see the header on the top of the page stating ‘Absences have been reported’.

You are allowed to make corrections. If you have students who attended but were erroneously marked as Never Attended, you can uncheck them and re-submit. Also, you can go back and mark students who were incorrectly reported as Never Attended.

Solution/Resolution

  1. First, close all browser windows.
  2. Wait for a few seconds.
  3. Then, reopen the browser and try accessing WebAdvisor again.

If this does not work, user will need to clear the cookies from the browser.

Clearing Cookies

Once the cookies are cleared, click "Close Window" on any new windows that WebAdvisor creates to keep from reaching the cookie limit again, and always click 'Log Out" to end the session rather than simply closing the original window or tab.
