Absence Policy

Policy for Documentation of Student Absence

As a courtesy (this is not a mandatory policy), the office of the Dean of Students will provide notice to faculty after appropriate documentation has been provided for the following reasons only:

  • Student absence of at least three days for medical reason with documentation from a medical doctor (Please note: Health Services does not provide documentation for missed classes.)

We ask that faculty deal directly with students for any absences that are fewer than three days.

This notice only verifies that we have received appropriate documentation and does not excuse a student from missed classroom work or missed assignments. Students and faculty must work together to resolve any issues relating to absences.

Please call 508-626-4596 if any questions on above. Thank you.
