What is an Attendance Flexibility Accommodation?

March 14, 2019

Wondering what an attendance flexibility accommodation is?  This accommodation can help grant equal access to courses for students with disabilities that are chronic or episodic in nature.  The policy does not mean unlimited missed classes, but does encourage an early conversation between instructors and eligible students on what is reasonable for a particular course.  Check out the Attendance Flexibility Policy, Suggested Attendance Agreement, and Frequently Asked Questions to learn more.  The Office of Disability Services (ODS) is always available as a resource, so please don’t hesitate to reach out with any additional questions. 

 

 Note: The flexible attendance policy and associated forms and documents have been endorsed by the Committee on Academic Policy (CAP).
