Please Note:
Excused absence letters do not excuse student-athletes from any homework, quiz, exam, etc. that is missed while participating in a University-sponsored athletic event. Student-athletes are still responsible for making up any work that is missed due to traveling. Only those student-athletes listed on the excuse letter are excused from missing class.
