Student Absence

The Office of Student Affairs (Student Affairs)  acknowledges that absences occur for a variety of reasons. As a courtesy to both students and faculty, the Office of Student Affairs will aid students in communicating legitimate and verifiable life circumstances to faculty.  If you are unable to attend classes as a result of a major medical crisis, death in your immediate family, or an emergency/crisis situation, and you would like additional support from Student Affairs, either email us at or call us at 541-962-3635.  Student Affairs will help facilitate conversations but it is at the discretion of the faculty member to approve the absence and/or make accommodations for the absence.
