What to Do

  • E-mail your instructors as soon as possible. Instructor e-mails can be found in this link: http://www2.mvcc.edu/forms/edirectory/. In each e-mail, you should state how long the absence is expected to last.  The instructor’s class absence policy will determine what effect the absence will have on your grade.
  • When you return to class, please communicate with your instructor regarding any work you missed during the absence.  You are held accountable for missed work.
  • If you are unable to email your instructors due to hospitalization or major illness, you may contact the Health Center at 315-792-5452 and we will notify your instructors.

Special notes:

  • If you have a doctor’s note supporting your absence or stating that you are allowed to return to class, you are encouraged to give a copy to each instructor upon your return.
  • COMMUNICABLE ILLNESSES:  If you are contagious, you should not attend class.  The instructor’s class absence policy will determine what effect the absence will have on your grade.
  • If your absence will be longer than a week, you should contact the Office of Accessibility Resources at 315-731-5702 for a consultation regarding whether or not a medical leave for the remainder of the semester would be in your best interest.

If you have any questions, e-mail healthcenter@mvcc.edu.
