SIUSOM Y4 Student Attendance Policy

Regarding Medical Appointments

  • Students will be excused from elective activities to seek needed medical care after notification and approval of the appropriate supervising elective faculty or his/her designee.

Regarding Non-Emergency Absences

  • Elective course faculty may approve brief absences during their elective, but are not required to do so. Any request must be made in advance, and with as much notice as possible. At the discretion of the faculty, students may be required to make up any missed work and/or be assigned additional work in order to receive credit for the elective.
