Student absence policy: What faculty and staff need to know

At the beginning of Fall Term, 2022, the University of Manitoba implemented a new policy around brief and temporary student absences. Whereas students have typically been required to produce a medical note or other documentation to justify a missed assignment, test or exam, now students are asked to fill out a self-declaration form instead. This new policy is meant to make things easier for students dealing with situations that require an absence for up to 120 hours.
