Serious family emergency 3. Special curricular requirements such as judging trips or field trips 4. Court-imposed legal obligations such as subpoenas or jury duty 5. Military obligations 6. Serious weather conditions 7. Religious holidays 8. Participation in varsity athletic competitions or university musical events The student is responsible for providing documentation of the reason for absence, if such is required by the instructor. Should the instructor and student disagree over the validity of a reason for an absence, the student has the right to appeal the instructor's decision according to the general appeal procedure in PS-48.
