Student Travel Policy

Executive Memorandum 96-002 January 26, 1996

From: Manuel A. Esteban, President

Subject: Student Travel Policy

On the recommendation of the Academic Senate and the concurrence of Provost Scott McNall, I approve EM 96-002, Student Travel Policy, for immediate implementation.


Students engaged in university-sponsored group activities (such as forensics, musical groups, athletics) will advise their instructors of their anticipated absences associated with the activity as early as possible in the semester and of any unscheduled absences as soon as those are known. Early in the semester, advisers for student-related university-sponsored activities must impress upon their students the necessity of advising faculty about the possibility of anticipated/unanticipated absences. Faculty, appropriately notified, will clearly identify for students the consequences of absences in the evaluation process and will provide students with the opportunity to make up the missed classwork and assignments, when possible.
