Procedures for Requesting Absences and/or Reasonable Modifications during the Didactic Portion(s) of the Curriculum

  1. Requests for absences or reasonable modifications due to religious observance can be requested by using the Request for Religious Accommodation Form found on MyPCOM. The request must be made in writing. Student Affairs will review absences for one to two days, the Equity and Title IX Coordinator will review all other requests.  
  2. Students must submit the completed form and you will receive a response from either the Student Affairs representative on their respective campus or the Equity and Title IX Coordinator.  
  3. If the request is approved, Student Affairs or the Equity and Title IX Coordinator will notify the student in writing and set up a plan of action.

Failure to follow the procedures set forth in this policy with regard to a request for an absence will result in an unexcused absence. The consequences of unexcused absences will be determined by each Course Director.

Please Note: Students should be aware of the requirements for particular classes and programs in which they are enrolled that may restrict or otherwise limit PCOM’s ability to grant absences and modifications
