Students with Disabilities

Disability Accommodations: If you need academic accommodations for a disability, you must first contact Ms. Rebecca Marin, Coordinator, Services for Students with Disabilities (214-768-4557) to verify the disability and establish eligibility for accommodations. Then you should schedule an appointment with the professor to make appropriate arrangements.

Medically Excused Absences

Our policy on medically excused absences is as specified by the Provost. Verification of medical illness and request for an excused absence from class will be handled in one of two ways. A physician or staff member from health/counseling and testing will provide either (1) a hand-written note on a Health Center prescription form, or (2) a signed letter written on Health Center stationery. Excused medical absences shall have specific dates of time periods indicated. Encounter forms and Walk-Out Statements verify a student's visit to the Health Center BUT DO NOT INDICATE AN EXCUSED ABSENCE.

General Absences

These policies on absences are issued by the Provost of SMU.
