 ABSENCE SUPPORT

Process Overview
Prior to any absence, students are encouraged to communicate and make arrangements for completing missed work with their instructors. When this is not possible and the absence from class is for three or more class meetings, students can request that Academic Services communicate with their faculty regarding absences. Students are not required to utilize this process.

Absence notification is for students experiencing medical, mental health or other personal crises that impact their attendance and academic progress. The process is also open to active members of the United States military who are being deployed.

In these instances, students can submit an absence notification request form and Academic Services will notify faculty of the absence(s) on behalf of the student. Requests for absence notification must include documentation to substantiate the absence(s).

Students who expect that they may have repetitive absences for an on-going or an episodic medical issue should consider going through the process to request reasonable accommodations with the Learning Access Coordinator in Academic Services.


 ACADEMIC ADVISING

Academic Advising at Lewis is designed to assist students in making academic choices for majors, minors or course selection, as well as to assist in making other important decisions that will impact the quality and meaningfulness of your college experience. Students with 0-45 earned credit hours are advised by their Success Coach. Students with 46+ earned hours are advised by their Faculty Mentor. Students in the School of Graduate, Professional and Continuing Education (SGPCE) can click here for more information about advising in SGPCE.
