Student Excused Absences Policy

Instructors shall make reasonable accommodations for students with a verified excused absence, for exceptional circumstances such as a serious illness, death in the family, university approved events, government required activities, an employment related conflict beyond the student’s control, or other serious or compelling reasons.  Students who believe reasonable accommodations have not been made, after completion of the course, may appeal their grade through the Grade Appeal Panel or petition to retroactively withdraw from the course through the Academic Standards Subcommittee.
