Missed Classes

Students may need to miss classes when representing the University in official curriculum-related, university-approved activities. In these cases, faculty are expected to provide, within reason, opportunity to make up any work or exams that are missed.

For instructions to request accommodation to miss classes, review the policy Missed Classes While Representing the University in Official Curriculum-Related, University-Approved Activities.

Topics include:

  • Written documentation you’ll need to provide the instructor in order to justify your absence
  • When to submit the documentation (no later than the first week of classes or as soon as the information becomes known)
  • Arranging to make up missed class work (the instructor’s prerogative)

University activity sponsors and instructional faculty alike are responsible for respecting the importance of such student participation and for assisting student participants in meeting their academic obligations.
