  • E-REG and First Day Attendance

E-REG is required for FALL and SPRING Semesters. E-REG for fall and spring will be open during the following time period: after tuition bills are mailed through the last day to add.

Don't jeopardize your class schedule or financial aid!

Visit the E-REG site and indicate your intention to attend the fall or spring semester.  You can access this site from anywhere with an internet connection. It's easy, it's fast--it  takes only a moment.

Go to myEdinboro, log in, then click on the EREG icon in the launchpad to record your EREG for this semester. 




What is E-REG?

E-REG is an icon within MyEdinboro that students click on to indicate that they will attend classes in the upcoming fall or spring semester.  Students can access the E-REG site from anywhere with an internet connection.

Students take note:  It is critical that you visit the E-REG site and indicate your intention to attend the semester for which you have scheduled.

When is E-REG open?

E-REG opens when tuition bills are mailed and ends at midnight on the last day of the ADD period for each fall and spring semester.

How do I use E-REG?

E-REG is fast and simple.  During the E-REG open period, just log into your myEdinboro and click on the EREG icon on the Launchpad.

When is E-REG required?

E-REG is required for each fall and spring semester.

E-REG is not used for summer sessions.

What does E-REG tell the University?

E-REG lets us know if a student is "really here."

Because accurate enrollment and seat count information enables us to provide better service to our students, we need to know who will be attending each upcoming semester.

E-REG provides information in a real-time, electronic format that allows us to confirm a student's enrollment status--whether or not students who have pre-scheduled are actually here.

How does the University use this information?

Coupled with First Day Attendance, E-REG helps us determine who is here and who is not.  When all records indicate that a student is not attending, we may DROP the student's class schedule.

Confirming a student's enrollment status through E-REG helps us determine when to REMOVE the class schedules of students who pre-scheduled, but are not attending.

How does E-REG help me?

You will be able to find and schedule more of the courses you need.

Dropping non-attended schedules frees seats for other students who need them.  Since this occurs throughout the ADD period, many previously closed courses become available while students are still able to adjust their schedules.

Will my schedule be dropped if I do not complete E-REG?

E-REG is used as confirmation of a student's intent to remain enrolled for the semester. 

If a student does not complete E-REG, this inaction is a factor considered along with non-attendance reports from instructors.  If the student does not appear to be attending, not completing E-REG may lead to the student's schedule being dropped.


What is the First Day Attendance Requirement?

FIRST DAY ATTENDANCE is required for all students in all classes.  This means that students must attend the first class meeting of each course on their schedule.

Students take note:  It is imperative that you attend classes and that you make sure your instructor knows that you are present in class.  Don't jeopardize your class schedule or your financial aid--report to all your classes the first time they meet!

How is First Day Attendance recorded?

Instructors will take attendance and report daily to the Office of Records and Registration throughout the "ADD" period.

Any student whose name is marked "non-attend" will be removed from the class list, freeing seats for other students during the "ADD" period.

Why do I have to attend my first class?

If you fail to attend the first class meeting, the instructor may report non-attendance to the Office of Records and Registration, and the class may be dropped from your schedule.

Attendance in all classes is important for a student's success.  The first class of a semester is particularly important as your professor will most likely give an overview of the course, distribute syllabi and exam/test dates, as well as begin teaching the course material.

What if I miss my first class due to car trouble, illness, or other extenuating circumstances?

We recognize that students may have a legitimate reason for not being in class.  In such a case, you should contact the professor via phone or email.  If you cannot reach the professor, then please contact the department chair or dean so that your name may be reported and not removed from the class.

How does First Day Attendance help me?

You will be able to find and schedule more of the courses you need.

Our goal is to remove scheduled classes of students who are not attending within the ADD period, and to open these classes to other students who need them.

In any given semester, as many as 700 seats are reported as "non-attend" and  are made available to students during the ADD period.  Those 700 seats make a significant impact on your ability to get into the classes you need.

Making unused class seats available early, as soon as the semester begins, allows students to schedule courses that may have previously been closed.

Do I still need to DROP a class if I decide not to take it and do not attend?

Yes!  You can not assume that the course will be dropped for you.  You must make sure your schedule is correct by personally completing your own ADD or DROP transactions.

If you have questions about how an ADD or DROP may affect your billing or financial aid, you may inquire at the Student Services Center in Hamilton Hall.

Why is First Day Attendance required?

First Day Attendance reporting is a win-win situation for both students and faculty. 

Because unused class seats are identified and reopened, students are able  to make final scheduling adjustments as early as possible.

Students then do not miss the important first class meetings, and instructors have accurate enrollment and attendance records from the beginning of the semester.

First Day Attendance helps in providing accurate enrollment and seat count information.  This helps the University provide the best possible service to our students.
