The Dean of Students provides assistance and support for students who miss a minimum of three class days due to illness, personal or family emergencies. A note will be circulated to professors advising of the absence. Students are still highly encouraged to contact professors for guidance related to any missed work during the absence.
To utilize this service, the student or family member completes this Request for Instructor Notification for Extended Absences Form including supporting documentation related to the absence. In some cases, if a student is unable to return to one or more of their classes, the Dean of Students can discuss enrollment options. Students or family members should contact the office at (570) 422-3461 to discuss options.
