Student Bereavement Policy

A student’s absence from class will be excused in the event of a death in the student’s immediate family or household for up to three consecutive business days for in-state memorial services and five consecutive business days for out-of-state memorial services.  The student is responsible for fulfilling the course requirements and for working with course instructors on an appropriate timeline to submit any missed assignments/requirements.  The Office of Student Outreach & Support (SOS) is the designated office to help support the student and review all available options if the death has an impact on the student’s academic progress for the term. Faculty requesting confirmation of the bereavement leave should consult with the SOS staff.
