Attendance and Deadline Modifications
For students that have disabilities with random acute episodes which may require them to miss class or deadline, Disability Services will approve for the student to be granted a reasonable amount of flexibility with excused absences, exam dates, deadlines, and participation points. Once approved for this accommodation, Disability Services will provide students with an “Attendance/Deadline Letter”, which directs instructors to work with them in developing a plan to modify the attendance, deadline, and participation policies. This plan is put in writing as early in the semester as possible, ideally within the first few weeks of the course. An Attendance and Deadline Modification Agreement must be reasonable, meaning it cannot compromise the essential elements or learning outcomes of the course.
To learn more about Attendance and Deadline Modifications, read the Disability Services Student Handbook.
