Students are required to contact the Office of Academic Affairs promptly in case of absence from school so that timely notification goes to course directors and clinic personnel. The Attendance Policy is described in the School Catalog.
An excused absence is normally recognized when students contact the Office of Academic Affairs before 9:00 a.m. on the day of an absence or when other proper written notification has been received and approved.
All students requesting an absence should provide the following information:
Second- and third-year students should also provide the name of your GPA and indicate whether patients have been notified of your absence and whether you have a block or rotation on the day of your absence.
