Absence Declaration — Evaluations

If you need to be absent for an evaluation as part of one of your courses (e.g., a test, midterm, or final exam), you must complete the absence declaration form*. You do not need a supporting document for the first absence in a course, whether for medical reasons or exceptional circumstances. Your request will be evaluated by the academic unit and you will be notified of the decision by email.
* If you have a scheduling conflict for final exams (three exams within a 48-hour period), you must submit your request for a deferred exam by email to your faculty.
