CommUnity Attendance Policy

  1. Undergraduate students are required to complete at least eight (8) CommUnity program credits fall, winter, and spring quarter. Attendance by administration, faculty, staff, and all WWU students is encouraged.
  2. Check in for CommUnity program attendance is taken at each program from 10:50 a.m. to 11:10 a.m. Students will be permitted 10 minutes to check out after the completion of the CommUnity program.
    Week of Worship programs are held Monday through Friday fall and winter quarter and Tuesday through Friday spring quarter and are available to attend for CommUnity credit. Check in and check out time are adjusted according to the Week of Worship schedule.
  3. Students must check in and out using their iAttended app and attend the entire program to receive credit.
  4. Students without a QR code scanner may attend the CommUnity program for credit by checking in with the head usher at the beginning and end of the program.
  5. Students are responsible for ensuring their CommUnity program attendance is accurately recorded in their iAttended app.
  6. Students are responsible for checking their iAttended app at the end of each CommUnity event to confirm that they have received CommUnity credit. If the credit does not appear in the app the student must immediately check with a CommUnity Usher to resolve the issue. CommUnity program credit will not be given after the check-out time has closed, which is 20 minutes after the event has ended.
