Academic Events refer to virtual and face-to-face teaching/learning activities, such as class sessions and exercises, labs, internships, asynchronous online forums, quizzes, exams, field trips and other class projects, and viewing and reviewing of handouts, readings, and recordings. Students are expected to attend all academic events assigned to them by their Course Directors/Course Instructors. If absence from a particular required academic event is anticipated or occurs spontaneously due to illness or other extenuating circumstances, proper notification procedures must be followed by students (outlined below).

  • The Office of the Dean of Students must be notified by students applying for a Medical Excuse from exam(s) using the following online Medical Excuse link.  (Please see Examination Attendance for further details ).
  • Course Directors and/or Course Instructors should be notified by students via email regarding Non-Medical Excuse for absence from exams and absence from all other academic events. The Office of the Dean of Students should be notified by students via email if multiple absences from academic events occur, or are anticipated.
