Managing Absences to Promote Public Health
Public health controls currently require on-going daily self-assessment prior to coming to campus. Students and instructors need to stay home if they are have cold or flu-like symptoms.
To ensure that students who must self-isolate for short periods of time are not significantly disadvantaged, the law school has adopted temporary procedures for health-related short-term absences.
View our Managing Absences to Promote Public Health page for more information and the full procedures.
