Absences and Medical Withdrawal

WCU Health Services does not provide class notes to excuse you from class.

Absence Notification Protocol

Students are expected to attend all meetings of the courses in which they are enrolled. However, students may periodically find themselves missing classes due to illness or injuries.

The Student Absence Notification process is designed to serve as a resource and central point of contact for students who, in a crisis situation, need to have their instructors notified of their absence. It will not excuse a student from class. This process is not intended to notify instructors of non-crisis related absences.
