Cook, Gary L.; Nussbaum, Thomas J.
Presenting guidelines for student attendance accounting developed by the Chancellor's Office of the California Community Colleges, this manual provides an update to the original guide published in 1983. Chapter 1 explains general items such as the academic calendar, admissions policies, student classification by enrollment status, and conditions affecting apportionment. Chapter 2 discusses residency regulations and requirements, providing general definitions related to residency and explaining legal requirements for determining residency and issues related to military personnel, tacking, and exceptions. Chapter 3 reviews attendance accounting for full-time equivalent students (FTES), covering reporting periods, reporting date procedures, determining attendance, required classifications for reporting of hours of attendance, computation of FTES, application of attendance procedures, and flexible calendar operations. Chapter 4 explains procedures for audit accountability, detailing general considerations, requirements, suggested information to supplement documentation, audit resolution processes, required documentation tabulations, and record retention and destruction of records. Finally, chapter 5 presents accounting procedures for apprenticeship courses of related and supplemental instruction, focusing on attendance and funding. (TGI)
