You need to go to the attendance policy. In general, as the ICC is a required course, a majority of requests will be refused. For approved absences, remediation will be required. Please include as many details on the absence requested as possible (mentor’s name, type of presentation, etc.), as it will enhance our ability to make a decision efficiently.
No. The ICC courses are required. Skipping them without discussion or a valid reason is a criterion for not fulfilling graduation requirements (and subsequently, not being allowed to graduate).
Fill out the absence request form and talk with us. We’re not completely unreasonable.
As a student, you can find it on Canvas.
If your absence has been approved or you are excused due to illness, you can make up the missed content by going to the remediation document.
In fairness to your colleagues, the assignments are designed to convey equivalent content and take an equivalent amount of time. So, if you missed 8 hours of ICC, chances are the remediation assignments will take 8 hours to complete. However, different people take different amounts of time, so it may take you longer or shorter than others.
Email the ICC course directors as well as Dean Garrity and Terri Blevins; we should be able to help you figure it all out. In addition, it will be important for us to make sure you are on the ICC class roster so we have you in small groups. Even if you know where you are supposed to be, please make sure we know about you.
We welcome your presence! You won’t want to register (and be billed again) for the course. Instead, please contact us and we’ll arrange it so you can audit and participate in anything you choose.
