• Please note the following:

    Students have a week from the time they return to school to submit this form and all required documentation. The form should be completed by any student that is requesting an excused absence from classes due to illness, bereavement, military service, jury duty, or other similar circumstances.

    PLEASE ALLOW 3 BUSINESS DAYS for your request to be processed. Once it has been processed, you will be notified via email on the progress of this request (i.e. approved, need more information, or denied).

    University Breaks and Holidays-Excused absences will NOT be approved if the absence falls immediately before or after university breaks or holidays (i.e. Fall Break, Thanksgiving...etc.). There are limited exceptions to this rule. Please email Akoko (contact info below) to see if your request qualifies to receive an exception.

    Excused absences are subject to the Student Absences policy and procedure available at http://inside.mines.edu/Student-Absences

    Questions or concerns can be addressed by calling 303-273-3350, emailing Akoko Omofoma at aomofoma@mines.edu or visiting the Student Life office, suite E240 in the Student Center.
