Student Handbook

Student Illness Policy

When a student misses class (or is unable to sign in to an online class) due to illness, the student must contact the professor as soon as possible. If the student wants to make up missed assignments, the student must provide the professor with medical documentation supporting the claim of illness and the dates of illness. The professor will discuss possible options with the student and determine if make-up work will be given. Make-up work will not be given if the Professor determines that too much work or class time has been missed. In such case, the Professor will notify the student of other appropriate solutions.  Make-up work does not count towards attendance.

When considering whether to withdraw from a class due to illness, please note that all policies on refunds and/or withdrawal fees described in the Catalog will be followed.
