Checking in for ESL 95, 96, 100, 103 and 106 students

  • Students will check in by swiping their student ID Card at the “attendance” computer.
  • For every visit, ESL students must use the "College Writing Skills Contract" where they have recorded their ESL class the section number. The computer tutor will sign the sheet every time an ESL student visits.
  • Students should memorize their ESL class section number and choose that section number every time they login on the “attendance” computer. If they do not choose the correct section number, their lab attendance for that day will not appear on the ESL login records. No changes to students’ login records can be made.
