Below are guidelines to remember every semester. For term-specific information
including important dates and deadlines, please click on the corresponding term button below.
Add Codes & Add Permits (PDF)
Add codes can be accessed when viewing your class roster in MyCoast. It is important to provide the students the Add Permit (PDF) when issuing add codes, as they contain important deadlines, instructions, and registration information for the student. Please do not issue add codes to any students wishing to add until the first class meeting. Add codes are not valid until the first meeting of your class. If a student tries to use the add code prior to the first class meeting the computer will give them an error message which in turn causes a lot of confusion and unnecessary phone calls to the Answer Center.
If a student experiences any issues with the add codes, please have them submit a Request to Add with Add Code form. If the deadline has passed, the student will need to attach a completed Add Permit with the student’s information, first date of attendance, the instructor’s signature, and add code. If this information is missing, the student will be redirected to the instructor to obtain the required information.
Title 5 Code of Regulations Section 5800 et seq. mandates that faculty drop all no-show students from their roster. Each year OCC undergoes an audit by the state to verify that no shows are dropped prior to census. It is your responsibility to drop any student who attends your class and then stops attending prior to census, by checking the box in the Drop Column on the Drop Roster.
Students who drop your class before the refund deadline will show on your Roster with a “DN” designation (“Drop with Refund”). When submitting your drops please determine if any of these students with the “DN” designation were “No Shows”. If so, you must change their status to a “No Show” drop prior to the Census date of your course. If the box is grayed out (which is an indication that the Census date has passed) and you are unable to update the drop status, you should contact Faculty Services (email listed below) to complete and submit the appropriate form so that we can make the required changes. You must provide your attendance roster, for auditing purposes, so we can verify that the student never attended the class. This needs to be done as soon as possible, preferably prior to the end of the semester.
If a student was dropped as a No-Show and wants to re-enroll into the class, you may give the student an add permit to register prior to the expiration date on the add permit if seats are available.

For a quick start-of-term checklist and guidance on what to do before your first class, before census, and immediately after census, please see our Welcome Information-Spring 2022 document. Another handy guide to keep readily accessible every term is Pete's Points for Professors. This will help answer most frequently asked questions by faculty.
