Sick Leave

During an academic year, which includes the summer, enrolled graduate students may be absent from normal student responsibilities for up to (but no more than) ten workdays in succession for reasons of illness or illness-related care.  Students who are receiving University of Missouri financial support will continue to receive support during that period. Graduate students should inform the relevant faculty who supervise their coursework, research, and/or teaching obligations about any absence due to illness as soon as possible; normal course and grading policies for the relevant department(s) and course instructor(s) will apply.  Students who must be absent due to illness or illness-related care for more than ten workdays in succession can either request a leave of absence from the University or apply for an extension of Sick Leave from the Dean of the Graduate School.
