Students are expected to attend all classes regularly and on time. Any necessary absences should be explained to the instructor. Students who are ill should contact their faculty member or leave a message for the instructor in the department office the day they are absent. Students with extended absence due to hospitalization or severe illness should contact Health Services. Notification will be sent to all instructors informing them of the student’s absence. Please note that extended absence notification does not excuse a student from classes. Students will only receive course credit if they have responded adequately to the standards and requirements set by the instructor. For other extenuating circumstances contact the Academic Advising office at studenthelp@saic.edu or 312.629.6800
