Notification of Absence Form - All students who will be absent from class for any reason should complete the Absence Notification Online Form. This form is submitted to the Dean of Students, who will forward it to the individual faculty members listed to notify of the reason for an absence. Some professors rely on this form and track reasons for an absence. Others only count total numbers of absences. If a student is in doubt about the policy in a given class, he or she should check with the instructor. The Dean of Students does not have the authority to excuse any absences. For any student who will be absent from class for more than five days due to a medical or personal emergency, please contact the Dean of Students Office directly at (305) 284-4551 or to discuss the circumstances. If you have technical issues accessing the form, please contact us at (305) 284-4551 or
