Within three (3) days of the student’s return to the University from an absence, the student who desires an excused absence must submit verification or documentation supporting the reason for the absence to the Counseling Center. The Director of the Counseling Center will give the student an approved excused absence form to be shared with the student’s instructors provided the documentation presented can be verified. Acceptable documentation includes those affidavits provided by doctors, lawyers, and other officials when appropriate. At the discretion of the respective instructors, documents may be reviewed for a decision.
Note: Official documents must be submitted to substantiate any request for an excused absence lasting longer than one week.
