On Recess FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions

What does "On Recess" mean?

On recess refers to students who have been inactive in their course for an extended amount of time. If a student is inactive, they are automatically put on recess. Students who are on recess on your current enrollment screen are not counted in your enrollment count.

Example:

Total enrollments = 255

On recess = 15

Active Enrollments used for TOR count = 240

This is particularly important for part time employees to monitor as the working hours are based off of active enrollments.
