Important Information Regarding Final Grades Reporting

Dear Faculty Colleagues:

It has come to my attention that some faculty members may not be recording information about the last date of attendance (LDA) for students who receive a “W” because they officially withdrew from a class or for students who receive a 0.0 because they stopped attending/participating (that is, these students unofficially withdrew from the class).  This is important information.  Among other things, it can have a significant impact on a student’s eligibility for financial aid, both retroactively and prospectively.  We need your help in making sure that this information is captured in College records.

When you award a final grade of 0.0 or a W to a student, please be sure that you record the student’s last date of attendance. You should be able to enter this information easily in Banner when you record grades. Your recording the LDA for the students in question would make the information readily available for a variety of purposes.  If you have trouble recording the information in Banner, please contact the Help Desk by phone (x5221) or email (LCC1@lcc.edu).

If you do not take attendance in your classes, please record your best estimate of the last date on which the student attended or actively participated in your class. This date might be the last date on which the student turned in an assignment, for example, or the last date the student participated in an in-class activity.

On behalf of the College, I give you my sincerest thanks for your kind help with this matter. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to let me know.

With all best wishes,

LCC Students Recruit Detroit Volunteers for Saturday 12/14

LCC’s Intro to Political Science (POLS 201) class is recruiting volunteers to help the Motor City Blight Busters clean up and beautify a Detroit neighborhood this Saturday, Dec. 14.  Eight LCC students are now on board with the Saturday effort, and 7 more students or staff are needed to fill the van.

To join the effort, contact Professor Marc Thomas at thomasm6@lcc.edu to reserve your spot.  Volunteers should meet at the LCC Gannon Building Circle Drive off Grand Ave at 7 a.m. on December 14.

The political science students selected Detroit as their fall-semester political project, and are mobilizing political support for the struggling city with the state legislature and are taking part in this neighborhood effort.   Your help on Saturday is encouraged.  More information on the Blight Busters can be found at this link:

ITS launches the new Account Activation and Management (AAM) application!

As first announced in a Star Alert on Tuesday, Nov 26th, ITS has replaced the old “Claim your account and Password reset” application with the new AAM application.  This application is now live!

All LCC users (Students, Faculty, Staff) will use the new AAM application to …

    • Activate their new TUID
    • Reset the password for their TUID
    • Select and set up a recovery method (either email or challenge questions)

 

What You Need to Do?

  • Please take 2 minutes right now and follow this link to the AAM application and set up your recovery method
    • Note
      • Your previous challenge questions will NOT be migrated over to the new AAM application
      • The AAM Recovery Method can ONLY be set when you know your TUID and Password; hence, it is important that you set this up now!

 

Questions?

Please contact the LCC Help Desk at lcc1@lcc.edu or 517-483-5221

 

P.S.  As typical, ITS does not recommend bookmarking links to individual LCC applications and services as they may change from time to time.  Instead, accurate links will always be made available in locations where you would most likely need to use them (e.g. off of our Single-Sign-in Login page), or on an appropriate tab in myLCC.  So, if you ever have an issue with a link not working to get to an LCC application or service, please use the link provided in these locations instead.  If you are still having issues, then please contact the LCC Help Desk.

Thank you,

 

 

Faculty and staff year-end giving opportunities

Dear Colleagues,

As the holiday season rapidly approaches, many of us are seeking meaningful ways to give back to our community and campus. I wanted to bring three opportunities to do so to your attention:

LCC Foundation

Scholarships change lives, futures, and communities. The LCC Foundation is currently unable to help about half of all LCC students who need scholarships. These students are struggling to afford the education that would change their lives. With your help we can meet the needs of students pursuing their dreams and wanting to contribute to our community’s strong workforce.

To donate now, visit the Foundation’s website at giveto.lcc.edu/.

United Way

Our annual Capital Area United Way workplace campaign began on November 18, 2013. LCC is pleased to partner with United Way to support their mission of “Helping People and Improving Communities.” 

We will offer an open-ended giving option again this year. If you select this option, your gift will automatically renew each year until you change it. Payroll deduction will occur January through December 2014 unless the open-ended giving option is selected.

Our campaign  wraps up this Friday,  December 6, 2013.

For questions, or to request a paper pledge form, contact Sherry Forrest in Human Resources at 483-1871 or forre1@lcc.edu.

American Red Cross

From disasters, heroes emerge. With generosity and compassion, they offer a helping hand in times of crisis. By choosing to support the American Red Cross, you become a hero to those in need.

LCC has a long tradition of supporting the Red Cross by sponsoring blood drives on campus. This year, faculty and staff can also choose to support the Red Cross through financial contributions. Although gifts can be made year round on the Red Cross website, LCC’s Red Cross campaign will run November 18, 2013 through December 6, 2013.

To donate now with a debit or credit card please click here.

Thank you in advance for your generous support.

Ann Kroneman, Executive Director, LCC Human Resources
