    records in our custody or under our control,
    including any records the university created
    or received during the course of operations.

    complete the program of study in a
    reasonable time frame.

    program to verify the attendance of all

    the grade ―F‖ in all classes for that
    term.
All failing grades
   The DOE makes the assumption a
    student who receives all failing grades
    in a semester is really a no-show.
       Note: students who have a D or better at
        midterm are considered enrolled even if
        they have an F for a final grade.
Burden of Proof
   It is up to the institution to prove to the
    DOE the student actually attended
    class.
