Students should contact their professors to explain absences and arrange for makeup of missed tests and assignments. Consideration of modification of attendance policies and assignment extensions are made case-by-case between the Disability Services Coordinator and individual faculty using guidelines provided by the Office of Civil Rights (OCR).
Lengthy absences, particularly in courses where attendance is an integral part of the learning experience, may not be excused. Leave of Absence may need to be considered as an option in these situations.
