|Students must contact faculty regarding absences|
Students are responsible for contacting each of their faculty members regarding their absence from class. However, the Dean of Students Office will notify faculty regarding a student's absence due to hospitalization, death in the family or other uncontrollable emergencies. This notification serves as a courtesy notice and not a verification of their absence. If a faculty member requires justification, it is their prerogative to request that from the student. The student will be advised to contact faculty regarding missed classes and course expectations.
