Will UMB excuse an absence for a student who is sick with COVID-19?

March 18, 2020

Those who are sick with COVID-19 should stay at home or in a health care facility until cleared by their local public health department to minimize the spread of the virus. Schools will make reasonable efforts to accommodate sick students. In some cases, makeup activity may not meet requirements for the student to continue in their studies as intended. The school and student will need to work together to determine a revised academic plan. Seek guidance from your school’s Academic Affairs office.
