Absences from Classes


If a student misses classes for any reason he/she should notify all instructors via email or phone call as soon as possible. If the absence is medically related, students should obtain a signed note from a health care provider regarding the absence to submit to instructors. The Dean of Students Office will not normally send notice of absence to instructors unless the student is unable to do so. Accommodations and make-up procedures are offered at the discretion of the instructor. Students who are not able to attend for an extended period of time may consider doing amedical withdrawal. Students are welcome to discuss their situations with the Assistant Dean of Students for Student Support.
