Should the student or the instructor need further guidance and any point in the creation or implementation of this plan, please contact the student's Disability Services Specialist.
  • This number should reflect the maximum number of classes the student can miss before fundamentally altering essential course requirements/expectations/outcomes, and may be expressed as a percentage of class meetings, or a number of class meetings.
  • Note: At no time are students required to present documentation to instructors in order to justify a disability-related absence.
  • Options might include attending another lecture/lab session, attending office hours, or obtaining notes from a classmate.
  • Generally, long term assignments that were assigned prior to absence may still be collected electronically during an absence, but short term assignments may require short deadline extension.
