Excused Hours

Students who are unable to report to a regularly scheduled work assignment due to an emergency are expected to notify their labor supervisor immediately. Special circumstances such as an excused absence due to a death in the family, or prolonged illness, should be communicated to the Labor Program Office to determine if the student may be excused from a portion of the labor requirement. This should be done as quickly as possible as some circumstances may require documentation. In instances other than emergencies, the labor supervisor should be notified well in advance of the absence and time should be made up before the end of the term. (Also see Attendance Policy.)
