Athletics and Academic Absence

It is Columbia University policy that student-athletes who miss classes and/or exams as a result of representing the University at an approved athletics contest may be permitted to make up the work and/or take the exam at another time or location.

To be accommodated in this way, students must first gain the approval of the team Head Coach as well as the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics and Physical Education before presenting the approved form to instructors as soon as the relevant team’s schedule is established.

Intercollegiate Athletics Absence Notification Form


Students must submit the completed form to Jacqueline Blackett, Senior Associate Athletics Director, 433 Dodge Physical Fitness Center.
