Absence for Illness

Students who have missed required term work because of incapacitating distress or illness should refer to the policies and procedures put in place by Redeemer University. Students may be required to submit this Student Illness Request form.

A student’s absence from tests and assignments due to a minor medical situation, lasting up to three days, will be excused without a doctor’s note. This form will only cover missed coursework that Learning Services can support students in completing. This does not include practical work (ex. in-person labs, music, theatre) or class participation grades, which must be addressed by individual instructors rather than Learning Services.

If a student is going to be absent, they must complete and submit this form indicating any assignments, tests, and midterms that they will miss. The form must be completed at the time of illness and will not be accepted retroactively. In addition, the extension on missed coursework is only for work missed in those three days of illness.

Learning Services will only notify instructor(s) of the excused absence when coursework is missed due to illness and a completed form is received. Learning Services will provide deadlines for missed coursework. It is also the responsibility of the student to contact instructors when classes are missed due to illness. If a student missed tests/midterms, or assignments and did not complete the form, OR if the absence will continue for more than three days, a doctor’s note submitted to Learning Services will be required.
