University-excused absences are for face-to-face classes only. For online classes, students work directly with their professors, unless an extreme emergency. For graduate classes, students work directly with their professors. Please review the policy and also what is excused and not excused. Weather, technology issues, and car trouble are handled by individual professors. Vacation is not an excused absence.
