Attendance Policy & SOAP Undergraduate Attendance Policy Regular class attendance is vital to our students’ academic success in classroom-based coursework, and you are expected to attend all scheduled class sessions. Students in online coursework are expected to attend by participating in class activities and at the required level and frequency. As a • • •

student, you are responsible for doing the following: Notify your instructors of planned absences Notify the Attendance Center in SAC Room 114 and individual instructors of any absence likely to last more than one week Make up all work missed during an absence

Two Weeks Missed = Withdrawal Example 1: If your course has 1 scheduled class meeting in one week, and you missed that meeting, you’ve missed one week. If you miss another meeting, you will be withdrawn. Example 2: If your course has 2 scheduled class meetings in one week, and you missed both meetings in that week, you’ve missed one week. If you miss both meetings in another week, you will be withdrawn. Consequences of Attendance Policy Violation

Financial Implications If you are withdrawn from your classes, you are still responsible for up to 100% of the tuition rate for each class and your Financial Aid may be affected if you fall below 6 credit hours. Extenuating Circumstances for Absenteeism Students who must be absent from all classes as the result of extenuating circumstances/special cases must contact the Attendance Center in SAC Room 114 to request a documented absence. The request must include the circumstances/reason for absenteeism and anticipated date of return to school.

Bluesocket (Wireless) Information

Troubleshooting:

Need to Know Info and Troubleshooting (Chicago Campus)

Some laptops might have issues connecting. If you can’t connect, you are more than likely having an issue with your laptop. Here are common issues encountered and the steps that can be taken to resolve the problems:

How to Connect

1) All users need to connect to the “DeVry Wireless” SSID.

Q: When I connect to “DeVry Wireless”, my laptop says I have “No Internet” or I never even reach the login page.

2) Once connected, open up a web browser (preferably IE or Firefox).

Q: When Blueprotect starts to scan my machine it gives me a “Connection Failed” error and doesn’t scan. A: On Windows 7 and Vista: 1) Reset your browser’s settings. 2) Add https://10.5.15.2 to your browser’s Trusted Site. 3) Close the browser. 4) Go to Control Panel à User Accounts and Family Safety à User Accounts. 5) Click on “Change User Account Control settings”. 6) Slide the bar to “Never Notify” and hit the “OK” button. 7) Open My Computer à C: Drive à Users folder à (choose your profile). Delete the folder called OESISTotal (if available).

3) You might get this certificate error. Just click on “Continue to this website (not recommended)”.

4) You will now see a login page. Use your DSI# and Network password to login.

6) If Blueprotect finds that there are no issues, you will be allowed on our network.

8) Reboot the machine. If you are still experiencing issues, please bring it in to the helpdesk. Every laptop MUST have an antivirus program to connect. Here are some program’s currently recognized by Bluesocket. (Older versions are recognized).

5) If you have Java installed, your laptop will be scanned by Blueprotect.

How do I install MyScribe on multiple computers?

MyScribe will then connect to the server and download all your books to your second computer. Best of all, the SharedNotes system will keep your notes consistent across all the computers; add a note on computer A and it will automatically show up on computer B.

What does this “Deauthorize My Other Computer” message mean? Background In our negotiations with publishers to license their content, the MyScribe support team has agreed to implement controls which prevent content from being used on more than five computers by a single licensed user. So what’s happening? Basically, our system believes that you have installed MyScribe on at least five computers other than the one you are currently using. This may have happened because you installed the full MyScribe on a lab computer or on Grandma’s computer at Thanksgiving. Okay, so what do I do to fix it? Send an email to helpdesk@devryu.net and explain that you need to deactivate one of your previous computers. The support team will configure your account so you’ll be able to use MyScribe on an additional computer.

What should I do if I get the message “The requested content cannot be found on your computer”? This message means that the content you are looking for has not been added to your account.  Please contact the DeVry University eLearning Help Desk (see contact information below) to have the content added.  In your course, you can also use the HTML option to access the content using your web browser. In some situations, this message appears although the content is downloaded and accessible in MyScribe.  If this happens to you, please disregard the message and open the book directly from the MyScribe Bookshelf.

I am entering my DSI and password as shown, but I am receiving an “Authentication Failed” message. What do I do? In short, it means your account has not yet been created. This may be because you recently added the class. Accounts are updated on a daily basis, so access to new content will depend on when you add a class and when your account has been created.   Please allow 24-48 hours from the time that you registered for your course. Please contact the DeVry University eLearning Help Desk (see contact information below) to verify your registration and request immediate access. You can also view the content using your web browser by clicking on the HTML link In the Course Text section of the syllabus.
