Absences

Sometimes absences are unavoidable.  Whether you are ill, need to attend a funeral, have an injury, or have a family or personal emergency, it is important that you report your absences to each of your professors. 

We will send notification for your absence when you notify us of an absence of more than 2 consecutive class days.  For illness, injury, death of an immediate family member, or unavoidable emergencies, please complete and submit the following form:



In most cases, we will require documentation related to your absence. Documentation may be faxed to (610) 625-7877, emailed to Michelle Shafer (shaferm@moravian.edu), or dropped off at the Academic & Accessibility Support Center located on the First Floor of Monocacy Hall.

Even though you may report your absence to the Academic and Accessibility Support Center, in most cases only your professor can excuse your absence.  It is up to you to communicate with each professor via email to see if your absence is excused and if you can submit any missed work or make up quizzes and/or exams.
