Class absences because of study tours, course-related field trips, professional conferences, practicum, and other educational activities that requires students to be absent from class:

Faculty supervising the educational activity should provide a memo or letter identifying specific dates and educational activity (study tour, field trip, etc.) to students sufficiently in advance so that faculty teaching other classes can be notified of absences. Students should allow no less than 5 days (excluding weekends) before the absence. Prior to the missed class, students need to discuss with the instructor make-up exams, announced quizzes, projects or labs that will be missed.
