If you feel ill, do not come to class. This policy applies not only to COVID, but to any illness. Your health (and ours) is more important than this class. Except for exams, you do not need to contact the instructor. Most class resources are available online.
If you feel ill, we recommend requesting a 24-hour extension for this week's coursework. Health-related extensions do not count against your three no-fault extensions. See our extension policies for more information.
If you feel ill either before or during an exam, please inform the course staff. We understand that exam stress can exacerbate health issues, and that illness can significantly interfere with exam performance. See our course policies for conflict and makeup exams.
If you are concerned that conditions related to a documented disability, illness, injury, or other emergency are significantly interfering with your ability to submit homework, attend exams, or otherwise maintain good progress in this class, please contact the instructor.
Diminished mental health, including significant stress, mood changes, excessive worry, substance/alcohol abuse, or problems with eating and/or sleeping can interfere with emotional and physical well-being, social development, and academic performance. The University of Illinois offers a variety of confidential services including individual and group counseling, crisis intervention, psychiatric services, and specialized screenings at no additional cost. If you or someone you know experiences any of the above mental health concerns, we strongly encourage you to contact or visit any of the resources listed below. Getting help is a smart and courageous thing to do, for yourself and for those who care about you.
If you feel ill before or during an exam, please contact one of the instructors. We understand that exam stress can exacerbate health issues, and that illness can significantly interfere with exam performance. See our course policies for conflict and makeup exams.
To obtain disability-related academic adjustments and/or auxiliary aids, students with disabilities must contact the course instructor and the Disability Resources and Educational Services (DRES) as soon as possible, and in particular at least one week before accomodations are actually required.
If you are concerned that a disability-related condition may be impacting your academic progress, DRES offers psychological/neuropsychological assessments for students who have had no prior diagnosis and are experiencing significant academic distress.
