Being sick is always challenging and even more distressing when the illness is impacting class attendance and/or academic deadlines and exams. Fortunately there is a process in place for students to alert the university, by registering on the Flu Web.
Once registered, a staff member from Student Support Services will send an email (usually within 24 hours) to review resources and to check in about possible needs such as: academic concerns, meals and health care. Depending on a student’s concerns, we can arrange for a Dean’s Note to be sent to professors, identify a friend to pick up a food pack or encourage a student to schedule an appointment with University Health Services. Fortunately most students are on the mend rather quickly, and for those few who may experience a longer recovery period, Student Support Services will make every effort to provide assistance in determining an academic plan.
