Office of Student Outreach and Support's Instructor Notification Policy

When students are absent due to a crisis or unexpected illness and unable to contact their individual instructors directly, the Office of Student Outreach and Support can send out a notification on their behalf.

  • Instructor notification is NOT appropriate for non-emergency situations (e.g. car problems, planned absences, minor illnesses, or a past absence).
  • Instructor notification is NOT a requirement for students. If a student contacts instructors about an emergency situation directly, it is not necessary to involve the Office of Student Outreach and Support.
  • Instructor notification is NOT verification that the information a student has provided is true. Documentation should be provided by a student upon request. Instructors have the authority to make decisions about students' absences and how absences will affect students' grades. Faculty are encouraged to consider that students utilizing the notification service are typically recovering from a crisis.
