SAM information for students

  • For most scheduled sessions, you will need to 'tap in' to record your attendance. You do this by tapping your campus card on a card reader
  • For areas that do not have card readers, your tutor will tell you what you need to do
  • It is important to you that the University has an accurate record of your attendance
  • You can view this information via the 'attendance calendar' link in ChiView
