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.


If you have a chronic illness or persistent medical condition, you should inform your academic dean of the situation. Your academic dean will assist in planning how to manage your situation.


Please refer a student with a chronic illness to their academic dean and/or notify the academic dean if a student seems to be struggling with a long-term illness.
