If a health or family emergency takes you away from campus
If you go home due to a health issue or family emergency:
If you must leave campus and miss classes, contact the Counseling and Wellness Center either by phone (989-463-7225) or by e-mail. Your family can call after you are home, but this step is important to complete.
A notice will be sent to your instructors (and advisor) to warn them that you will be absent from campus. You would contact individual faculty members and develop a plan to catch-up any missed work.
Your advisor can help you solve problems and work with faculty to make sure you have what you need. It is possible your friends could help collect and bring you materials from school. Some work could be done over the web. There are a lot of alternatives here.
If the situation is serious enough or lasts long enough, then your advisor, staff at the Academic and Career Planning Office, the Health and Wellness Center, or the Registrar can advise you on possible courses of action. Potential tools include a grade of incomplete (IN) with work to be completed within six weeks after the term ends, a petition to withdraw from a course (see your advisor or Registrar), or even withdraw from the College (handled through the Academic and Career Planning Center).
We hope that any unexpected difficulty will be brief in nature. You have many campus resources at your disposal to help you out, so make sure you take advantage of what you need!
