Class Absence Notification Policy

Student Health Services (SHS) seeks to empower students by encouraging communication directly with the faculty regarding attendance matters. We do not issue excuses for missed classes.  When a student has been evaluated at Student Health, and it is determined that they will miss 3 or more days of classes, Student Success Center will be notified by SHS with permission from the student. The Student Success Center will communicate with faculty regarding the length of absence.  Whether or not the missed class time is considered an excused absence is left to the discretion of the instructor of each class.  Students are strongly encouraged to communicate with their instructors prior to or immediately upon their return to classes.
