Class Absence Due to Illness
Morris has a policy that students be excused when they miss class due to verifiable illness. To establish verification:
- Visit Health Service on the day that illness causes an absence for class
- Visit another healthcare provider and bring documentation to Health Service
- Phone in the day that class is missed and be seen by Health Service staff within a day or two
Students are encouraged to contact their faculty members the day they miss class.
