Emergency Absences are always unplanned events,
and documentation is always required
Examples include unplanned events such as hospitalization, death of a loved one, and physician-ordered absences.
PLEASE NOTE that issuing an absence notification does not "excuse" the absence, regardless of the reason. All professors have full discretion about whether or not an absence will be "excused." For more information about excused absences the student should refer to the course syllabus or speak directly with the instructor.
