Absence Request

Interns must submit requests one week prior to absence, unless it is an emergency. However, emergency absences must still be communicated & form must still be completed. 

EXCUSED ABSENCES: ELI allots for excused absences for the following reasons. This kind of absence gives an intern the ability to make up assignments that were missed.

  • Family emergencies.
  • Major health condition or contagious illness – must have detailed doctors note.


NON-EXCUSED ABSENCES: The following reasons will not be excused and you will not be able to make up missed assignments (for in class work, tests, quizzes, etc). More than 2 non-excused absences will result in a letter grade drop.

  • Personal days.
  • You don’t feel 100%.
  • Sleep.
