Federal financial aid regulations require that students who receive federal Title IV aid must complete an academically related activity in each course in which they are enrolled prior to the disbursement of their financial aid.
Effective Fall 2015, financial aid and scholarships will be disbursed only after all attendance (every course) has been confirmed for the term of enrollment.
In order to accomplish this, students must complete an academically related activity (assignment) via Canvas.
Examples of acceptable evidence of attendance at an academically related activity for an in-person class include:

This assignment should be listed as due at the end of the first week of classes, but it should not be closed until week eight of the term in order to ensure that students whose aid is delayed are able to complete the assignment and receive a late disbursement without causing extra work for the faculty member.
The confirmation of attendance via an academically related activity will be required for all students, not only those receiving financial aid.
