University Policies, Procedures, and Deadlines

I was very ill last semester and missed many classes. I notified my instructors that I would have to miss classes, but some of them didn't allow me to make up the work so I failed some classes. Is there anything else I should have done? Anything I can do now?

Whenever any kind of problem arises that affects your academic career at UArizona, be sure to get in touch with your advisor right away. You did the right thing to contact your instructors, but advisors can inform you of policies and your options in such situations. Since your grades have already been posted, you could file a General Petition requesting retroactive withdrawal. See your advisor to discuss your situation, and to get more information about the options available to you.

Where can I look up academic policies at the University of Arizona?

All the policies and university-wide regulations regarding courses, exams, grades, graduation, registration, transferring, etc. are available online in the General Catalog . If you need help understanding policies, see your advisor.
