A student who is absent from an in-person assessment in a course will receive a grade of zero on the assessment. Students who are absent are responsible to contact their instructor to determine impact of the missed assessment.
At the discretion of the instructor, alternative arrangements may be considered including the following:
- The instructor may set another assessment
- The instructor may transfer the percentage weight for the assessment to another component of the course
- The instructor may transfer the percentage weight for the assessment to the final examination
- The instructor may make alternative arrangements
An instructor will normally make this decision based on the information provided by the student. The instructor may ask for supporting documentation to confirm an absence. For additional information on supporting documentation, see section M.1. Supporting Documentation.
Students are responsible for costs that may be associated with obtaining supporting documentation.
