The accommodation of Flexibility in Attendance & Assignment Due Dates is confusing to both faculty and students.
The extent of flexibility available for a particular course depends on a number of factors:
- course objectives
- class activities
- learning goals
- class format (lecture, lab, or discussion)
This accommodation requires that a student meet with the instructor to go over the amount of flexibility allowed in the course as well as the communication requirements regarding extension requests or notification of an absence that is related to a disability. Flexibility is on occasion, as needed, and does not apply to every assignment.
