HOW TO TALK TO YOUR PROFESSORS ABOUT MISSING CLASS/ASSIGNMENTS FOR THE HIGH HOLY DAYS:
1. Reach out to your professor, as soon as possible, and make arrangements with them. Students should always try to make alternative arrangements with their professors before contacting another office for assistance. ONLY if the professor is unwilling or unable to offer reasonable accommodations should you contact others (first, the chairperson of the academic dept, then the Dean of the school in which the course resides, and ultimately Student Affairs).
2. Ask the professor how they would like you to make up missed assignments and lectures.
3. If needed, use this form (below) to request a letter from QC Hillel explaining the situation. We are happy to help you!
