Step 7 - Attend Class/Create a Moodle account

TRADITIONAL OR HYBRID COURSES:  Students registered in a traditional or hybird course are expected to attend all class meetings of their courses, beginning with the first class.  Please review the attendance policy on page 28 of the class schedule for more information.

ONLINE COURSES: Students registered in an online class must create a Moodle account before the first day of the term to access online courses. See the Distance Education page of the class schedule for more information.

Students are expected to attend all classes in which they are enrolled. Unless you have made prior arrangements with your instructor, you may be dropped from the class roster if you do not attend the first class session. However, you are responsible for formally dropping your class even if you don't attend. If you fail to drop during the refund period, you will be responsible for the charges. If you have excessive absences and fail to drop or withdraw from class by the deadlines, a grade of F may be assigned at the end of the term. Any changes to your registration must be done through myCGCC (Student Online Services).

If you have questions or need help with this process, contact Student Services at 541-506-6011 in The Dalles or 541-308-8211 in Hood River.
