UWRF STUDENT HEALTH SERVICES DOES NOT PROVIDE EXCUSES FOR ABSENCES FROM CLASS. The notifying of instructors and arranging of make-up work in cases involving absence of students from class are the responsibility of the student. A student who is absent should notify instructors by phone, email, or in person of the absence as soon as possible. In serious situations where the student is incapacitated and temporarily unable to contact faculty, family members may contact the Student Conduct and Community Standards Office (715-425-0720) for assistance with these matters. This office then would provide notification (not verification) of the absence to the instructors involved. The Student Conduct and Community Standards Office does not provide excuses for absences from class. Arrangements for make-up work, make-up exams, or possible assignment adjustments are entirely the responsibility of the student. Medical excuses will not be written by staff or providers at the Vibrant Health Family Clinic in River Falls nor by UWRF Student Health Services staff.
