In accordance with recommendations of the Washington State Department of Health on controlling coronavirus on campuses, we are modifying our excused absence policy so that students do not need a note from a health care provider to be excused from class due to illness. This change will take effect immediately and will be in effect until further notice. It is imperative for the health and safety of others that all members of our Whitman Community stay home if you are feeling sick.

If you are sick, you need to be in immediate communication with all your faculty.

You are still responsible for completing all coursework assigned.
