It is always good practice to advise your professor in writing via email if you are going to be absent from class. If you need to be absent for more than three days, you will generally need to provide documentation regarding the reason/nature of the absence to your academic dean’s office. Each professor may have individual attendance policies and you should refer to the course syllabus for this information. Class attendance is vitally important to your academic success and is ultimately your responsibility.
