Academic and Faculty Affairs
Student Institutional Excuses
A student institutional excuse may be granted to students who participate in academic, extracurricular, or athletic events as representatives of the University, or for military service. Academic units are encouraged to create appropriate internal processes to review and approve institutional excuses. Faculty and instructors may give a different test and/or assignments composed of different subject matter than that missed by a student who obtains a valid institutional excuse. Students seeking an institutional excuse in one of the four proscribed categories should use the appropriate form to initiate the student institutional excuse request and approval process.
