Absence Request Form


If you anticipate or need to plan for an excused absence, e.g., required medical appointment, a written request should be submitted to the
Department Head in advance for consideration/approval by the faculty. Approval of requests for excused absences will require the inclusion of the
plan from the student for making up missed content. Request for excused absences for activities other than health issues, family emergencies, etc.,
will be scrutinized closely by the faculty and will be judged individually and on their own merits relative to the value of the content to be missed
and probability of recreation of missed content… it should be submitted to the Department Head at least three weeks in advance… You should not
assume approval of a request for excused absence until you receive notification of faculty approval. (Excerpts from UNG Physical Therapy Student
