Reminder for instructors: Student Declaration of Absence Form

Posted by Student Health & Wellness on November 25, 2021 in General Announcements

Instructors are reminded and encouraged to implement the Student Declaration of Absence Form for winter 2022 courses.

Implementing the Student Declaration of Absence Form as part of a course is done through Brightspace. Simply log in to Brightspace, select "Student Declaration of Absence" from the drop-down menu, and choose the course(s) in which you would like to implement the Student Declaration of Absence Form.

The discretion to arrange alternate coursework, assignments and/or tests remains with the instructor.

The Faculties of Engineering, Medicine, Law, Dentistry and the College of Pharmacy are exempt from this regulation and will not be using the Student Declaration of Absence Form. These faculties have separate regulations to cover short- and long-term absences.

Further details and resources are available on the Student Health & Wellness SharePoint site, including FAQs and information you can add to your course syllabi about the Student Declaration of Absence Form.
