H1N1 Absence Policy Discontinued
March 11, 2010
MACOMB/MOLINE, IL – With the major threat of an H1N1 pandemic and a seasonal flu outbreak diminishing, Western Illinois University has discontinued the special absence policy set in Fall 2009. The University has returned to the standard class attendance policy, which can be found at wiu.edu/policies/stuabsc.php.
The standard policy states:
Students are expected to attend all classes in which they are enrolled. Each faculty member determines his or her own policy dealing with class attendance. Therefore, if a student misses a class or classes, the student is expected to discuss the matter with the instructor, and it is up to the discretion of the instructor whether to allow a student to make up any missed assignments, exams, or projects.
