Missing class because you’re sick? Here’s what to do.

First and foremost, get the care you need. Make an appointment with University Health and Counseling Services via myhealthconnect.case.edu or access CWRU Care, the 24/7 telehealth care service. In instances where you are concerned that you may have COVID-19, you should immediately follow the most up-to-date practices and protocols from the university.

If you’re going to miss class, work directly with your faculty and instructors to inform them about your situation and make appropriate arrangements directly with them about your work and assignments.

Some faculty may request confirmation through a navigator, at which point you can submit medical documentation of your illness to your navigator. Once your navigator receives your documentation along with your request to contact your faculty, they will reach out on your behalf.  Ultimately, the decision of whether an absence is excused or unexcused is up to your faculty or instructors.

For more information on this and other types of absences, consult the university class attendance policy found in the General Bulletin.
