Nobody likes being sick, especially if your illness is getting in the way of school work. But don’t worry, there are different options available to accommodate you when you are ill.
Report your Absence through ACORN
If you have to be absent from class for any reason (e.g., COVID-19, cold, flu and other illness or injury, family situation) and you require consideration for missed academic work, report your absence through the online absence declaration. The declaration is available on ACORN under the Profile and Settings menu.
Inform your Instructor
Send an email as soon as possible to let your Instructor know you’re sick and that you have reported your absence in ACORN.
Check your syllabus
Review the course policy for missed tests.
Petitions are only required for exams held during the formal exam period in December or April.
