Faculty UCC Requirements


This page provides faculty who are supported by FIU Online with additional information to assist with meeting the UCC requirements for the upcoming term.

Course Attendance/Participation

As the Provost indicated, UCC course instructors are being asked to track the attendance of students during the first two weeks of the semester. Activity in the course learning management system will be used as a proxy for participation in hybrid and online courses. If you are teaching a hybrid course or online course, students will need to log in to the learning management system and access each UCC course shell during the first two weeks of the semester. No further action is required from you for reporting on attendance.

Mid-Semester Grades

To ensure that students receive feedback with sufficient time to improve their overall grade or modify their enrollment, the Provost has requested that faculty members teaching UCC courses enter a “Mid-Semester Grade” into the respective learning management system. Your instructional designer will assist with the creation of a mid-semester grade column in your course shells. Instructions on how to add grade entries to the “Mid-Semester Grade” column are available.
