Census Date Activity


The NC Community College System requires students to participate in classes by the course Census Date, which occurs 10% into the term. This link will take you to the NC Community Colleges Code 1G SBCCC 200.93 Reporting of Student Hours

To demonstrate appropriate attendance and punctuality, students should:

  • Every student regardless of location or mode of delivery must attend at least one face-to-face class meeting or complete one assignment/activity for an online class by the census date or be reported by the instructor as “never attended.”
  • A student who has never attended a class by the ten percent (10%) date is no longer enrolled in the class and will not earn credit or receive a tuition refund for the course.
  • To locate the census date, login to the MySCC portal, then click on the Self Service icon to access the Faculty Menu. Census dates are shown across from the section name. 
  • Students in online / web-centered courses must actively participate; logging in or emailing the instructor is not sufficient for the census activity.  Student completion of an activity must be recorded as the first item in the Moodle Grade Center.

This link takes you to tutorials that explain how to enter and certify your information using self service (link opens in a new window).
