- If you are going to miss any classes, you should notify your professor(s) and the student health service coordinator, ext. 7863. If you will miss significant class time or will miss a test, quiz, a due date on a paper, lab report, etc., you should contact the associate dean of the College, ext. 7214, and get a note from the medical practitioner that you can present to your professor(s) and the Office of Student Development. As soon as you are well, you and your professor(s) will need to discuss the missed coursework. In some instances, it may not be possible to make up the work, such as labs, group presentations, or field trips.
