Individual faculties/schools will revert to normal practices with respect to any requirements for medical notes related to academic leniency effective January 5, 2010. For more information, please speak with your instructor.
Student absences during the final examination period: information about students self-reporting flu-like illness on Banner will be released to academic units in lieu of a medical note.
