MSU Denver Mandatory Participation Verification Policy

Check your syllabus for each course, each semester.

A busy day on Auraria Campus.MSU Denver is required to ensure that all students have actively participated in their courses due to Title IV regulations. This is completed on the published census date for all full-term and shorter-term courses (e.g., Winterim, Maymester). To determine the census date for your course, refer to the course dates listed either in the Part of Term schedule or within your course syllabus.

Faculty defines what constitutes participation in each of their respective courses, and this information will be provided in the course syllabus. The course syllabus is typically available the first day of the course. If a student is indicated as not participating, they will be administratively dropped by the Office of the Registrar on the coinciding census date. Students will receive notification through their student email once they have been dropped.

Tuition and fee charges will be adjusted according to the refund policy for the course where non-participation was reported. It’s important to note that this may also impact eligibility for programs such as Financial Aid and Scholarships, Veterans Education Benefits, and students attending on an F-1 Visa.

For more information, please review the Participation Policy FAQs below.

The Participation Policy can be found in the 2023 – 2024 Academic Catalog.
