Saint Xavier University Chicago Campus Residence Halls

Class Absences


Punctual and regular class attendance is expected of all students. Students are directly responsible to notify instructors of a class absence. Students can request the Office for Student Affairs (773-298-3121 or studentaffairs@sxu.edu) to notify instructors of an illness or emergency.

Excessive absence, even for serious reasons, may disqualify a student from receiving academic credit. In the event of foreseeable absence, the student should make suitable arrangements with instructors regarding work. Reported absences do not relieve the student of academic responsibilities. The student should take responsibility to obtain class notes and assignments. For prolonged absences, students are encouraged to contact an academic advisor or the dean of students, in addition to instructors.
