Academic Activity Instructions for Faculty

For details about what academic activity is and what is considered an academic activity, please review our Academic Activity webpage. The below information only outlines instructions for processing academic activity.

Please use the below instructions in the second week of the semester to indicate whether students have completed an academic activity in all your course sections. It is important to be exacting in your tracking since any student who is not marked as having completed an activity will not receive aid funding for that course. For records to be captured in time for Financial Aid First Pay, you should record every student with a Y or N before the beginning of the third week of coursework for the part of term.

If you must record a student in the third week of academic coursework or later, please be aware that the system will be unavailable on occasion while aid packages are disbursed to student accounts.

There is a way to record all the Y activities for a section at once. Please completely read step 4 to save time.

Important Notes

  • All N selections will continue to show in the drop-down button until the deadline.
  • N selections may be changed from N to Y until the deadline. Y selections may not be changed once submitted.
  • If all selections are Y, then no buttons are displayed.

If you incorrectly report a student as Y, you must contact and provide the course information, student name, and N number. The Office of Records and Registration can only remove incorrectly reported Y-yes records. They cannot change Y-yes to N-no. Once the incorrectly reported record has been removed, you must go back in and report as N-no.

Students who late register, course transfer, and/or reinstate will need to have their academic activity tracked. Therefore, in some cases, an instructor who has already completed academic activity tracking for their course(s) will need to go back into the screen to complete tracking for the students who have had changes to their registration since the instructor first completed the process.

Syllabus Language

Faculty have the pedagogical freedom to plan HEA approved academic activity or several activities to be outlined on their syllabus by the second week of courses. Please refer to the HEA Approved Academic Activity table at the top of the page for guidance.

The faculty member has the option to add the following sort of language to the syllabus:

  • "You must be in attendance or have a faculty approved absence for his assignment. An unexcused absence from this assignment could impact your ability to receive institutional or federal aid."
  • You must be participating online or have a faculty approved absence for this activity. An unexcused absence from this assignment could impact your ability to receive institutional or federal aid."
  • Submission of this quiz by the due date is critical. Failure to meet the deadline could impact your ability to receive institutional or federal aid."

During the second week of classes, the faculty should log into myWings self-service, navigate to the Faculty tab, and record whether or not each student completed the approved academic assignment in the second week. They must be done prior to the start of the third week of classes. Please see the above instructions for more detail.

In the instance a student has an approved absence, the faculty member can assign a difference HEA approved activity for which to record the student.

Faculty will receive email correspondence for any remaining or new students who have yet to be records or need to be recorded again.
