Missing Class Due to Illness or Injury

Getting sick or injured happens. Understanding the UO’s policy on course attendance and academic work and timely communication with your instructors is key to managing your responsibilities when you’re too sick or injured to attend class.

Step One: Listen to your body and follow medical advice. Staying home when you are sick or injured is an important part of recovering faster so you can get back to your learning. It also can help reduce the spread of communicable illnesses on campus.

Step Two: Consult your course syllabus on attendance policy, then communicate with your instructors about your absence and your plan to make up the work.
