Missed Sessions

Return to: Academic Residencies and Requirements  

Students are encouraged to select a residency they are able to attend from start to finish.

As students are expected to attend all residency activities, residency faculty administrators do not approve student requests for late arrival or early departure unless it is an unavoidable situation (e.g., airline difficulties, death in family, personal or family illness, and religious observation). Residency faculty administrators should have predetermined alternative assignments ready to provide students in cases where a portion of a single session is missed.

Should you need to depart in the middle of a residency or session, you must contact your program’s residency faculty administrator and determine how you will complete the hours and content missed. You are also required to sign out with the Academic Residencies staff prior to leaving the residency.

In some situations, you may be asked to attend an additional residency to make up for portions of a residency missed because of an unavoidable situation. If you miss parts of a residency for avoidable situations, will receive a “U” grade for the entire residency.

If you have questions about flight delays, or travel emergencies, contact Academic Residencies. Academic Residencies will work with you and the residency faculty administrator for their specific program to make up any academic sessions that are missed. If you are concerned about arriving after registration closes, please contact the Residency Office on-site or call Academic Residencies on-site at 1-612-325-0990.
