Record Attendance

  • Attendance must be submitted through the Faculty Self-Service site, as the Registrar’s office uses this system for recording keeping.
  • Follow guidelines for attendance according to the Attendance Policy listed in your syllabus. If you are unsure of the policy for your course or have questions about how to handle a specific student situation, please email your academic director.
  • Submit weekly attendance within 24 hours of class session (onsite courses) or within 24 hours of the last day of the week (online courses).
  • If you have technology issues, please contact IT Support Services, Herrick 143, Phone: (405) 491-6396, Email:

Instructions for Recording Attendance:

  • STEP 1
    • From any area in Canvas, click on Help & Tools from the left sidebar. Select Faculty Self-Service. This will navigate you out of Canvas and into Colleague, our Student Information System for attendance and grades.

  • STEP 2
    • Click on the course name. (If you have a cross-listed course, once you click on Attendance it will show all students even though the courses may be listed separately on this page.)
  • STEP 3
    • Select the Attendance tab.
  • STEP 4
    • Use the Select Date option to select the correct date for your attendance. You should only need to select a date if you are taking attendance for a day/week other than the current date/week.  You can click on Update All and select either to count all as Present or Absent. You can then go change the status for individual students if necessary. You can also click the Comment box next to a student’s name to add notes. You do not have to save the information. The system will auto-save it as you make your selections.
