This form must be filled out to request or report an absence from

  • a mandatory activity,
  • examination
  • or to request any other exception to College of Medicine policy.

Class absences can ONLY be approved by Academic Affairs.

In emergent situations, (i.e. less than 24 hours notice), you need to call the persons below AND complete this form as soon as possible. If an emergent situation occurs outside of normal business hours (8am-5pm, Monday-Friday), please contact your course director.  Missed work and/or make up work will be addressed/scheduled during normal business hours and may need to be handled once the student returns to school.
