Missing Class, Long Term and Chronic Illness
The Pratt School of Engineering recognizes that some students will enter Duke with a chronic illness, or will develop a medical condition that persists; such conditions may have an impact on academic life as well as campus life.
Students: If you have a chronic illness or persistent medical condition, you should contact your academic dean and inform her or him of the situation. Your academic dean will assist in planning how to manage your situation.
Instructors: Please refer a student with a chronic illness to his/her academic dean and/or notify the academic dean if a student seems to be struggling with a long-term illness.
