Absence notification memos
If you are hospitalized or have a death in your immediate family, contact the Dean of Students Office to request an absence notification memo. We will verify documentation related to your absence, contact your instructors, and support you during the time of crisis. Please note, it is up to each instructor to decide whether to excuse an absence and if any alternative arrangements will be required and it is your responsibility to be in contact with your instructor when you are able to return to determine what steps need to be taken to make up missed class time and coursework. Additionally, we may not be able to provide a memo if you do not make contact us within a reasonable timeframe.
