Student Absence Notification
A student who is absent from class should notify instructors as soon as possible (either by phone, e-mail or in person). Notifying instructors and arranging make-up work is the responsibility of the student. If contact with instructors cannot be made directly the student should call the academic department involved. This information is available in your Campus Directory.
If your absence is medical related and you have been receiving treatment from the Student Health Services they may be able to be of assistance to you. They can be reached at 608-342-1891.
In serious situations where the student is incapacitated and temporarily unable to contact instructors, family members may contact the Office of Assistant Chancellor for Student Affairs at 608-342-1854 for assistance with these matters. The Office of Student Affairs would then provide notification (not verification) of the absence to the instructors involved. However, arrangements for make-up work, make-up exams, etc. are the responsibility of the student.
Note: The Student Health Services nor the Office of Student Affairs provide excuses for absences from class.
If students have questions or need consultation regarding specific situations, they are encouraged to contact their instructor or the academic department involved.
