Attendance and Delayed Assignments

Attendance and Delayed Assignments

Students having a diagnosed medical condition that is chronic and episodic may have an approved accommodation from the Office of Accessible Education as to the need for consideration for class absence or delayed assignments. Students with this accommodation are required to discuss with professors the acceptable delay in any given assignment or number of missed classes. Professors are not required to alter or change essential course requirements. It is at each professor’s discretion as to the number of days late an assignment may be submitted without penalty, or the number of absences without penalty. If a student exceeds the acceptable number of negotiated missed classes or delayed assignment dates, it may be necessary for the student to withdraw from a class. Students must adhere to the deadlines for withdrawing from classes.
