What should I do if I need to be absent from classes?

The first thing to do is to notify your instructors of your impending absence, find out what material you will be missing, and if it is possible for you to hand in assignments late or make up missed quizzes and examinations. If you miss class for illness, personal or family emergencies, or other excusable reasons, you can print an Absence from Class Form from the Registrar’s website. You may later be required, by instructors or by the College, to provide additional documentation to validate your absence, and you may still be responsible for making up missed work, at the discretion of each individual instructor.
