What else should I consider?

Check in directly with your professors to assess what material and assignments you have missed and what flexibility they are able to afford you with deadline changes and make-up work.

If you have missed a substantial amount of class time and will not be able to successfully complete the term, please contact Student Health Services at 508-831-5520 to schedule an appointment with the Director, Regina Roberto. She can explain and guide you through the medical withdrawal and re-entry process.

If you need official verification of absence from class due to illness or hospitalization sent to your professors, contact the Office of Academic Advising at 508-831-5381 or email academic-advising@wpi.edu.
