Is there a policy on making up work due to illness or family issues?


Making up Work

Please contact your instructor about completing make up work. If there was a medical or family emergency, it might be possible to submit a late withdrawal appeal. An appeal process is available to students who experience an extenuating circumstance beyond their control that affects their ability to participate in coursework for a prolonged period of time or ability to drop/withdraw by the deadline. Students must complete an appeal application packet, including supporting documentation, for their appeal to be considered.

A student must document the extenuating circumstance. (Please note that a change in employment or work hours does not constitute an extenuating circumstance.) Extenuating circumstances include military personnel and emergency management officials being unexpectedly required to report for temporary duty (TDY) during an academic term.

Appeals must be submitted within 12 months of the end of the semester for which the student is appealing. Repeated appeals for the same reason will not be considered. The decision of the College-Wide Student Appeals Committee is final. If you were unable to finish a course due to illness or a death in the family, please call the appropriate campus to schedule an appointment and receive instructions about the appeals process.
