Authorized Absences due to COVID-19

The College encourages all students to attempt to complete their winter 2020 semester when possible.

In some cases students may be unable to complete some or all of their winter 2020 courses due to family responsibility/childcare, personal or health reasons related to the COVID-19 pandemic situation and/or for reasons related to online learning. In such cases students may request an authorized absence(s) so that there is no academic penalty for not completing the course(s). Students should be aware that they will be required to retake the course(s) in a subsequent semester for which an incomplete (IN) is granted.

Students who are unable to complete their winter 2020 semester due to issues related to the pandemic and/or online learning and who wish to submit a request for incompletes must send an email to authorized.absence@johnabbott.qc.ca. Students must indicate “COVID-19 IN” in the subject line and include their full name and student ID number in the body of the email. An electronic form to fill in will be sent to the student. The Registrar’s Office will process such requests from April 20 to June 18, 2020.

All other requests for incompletes (absences that occurred prior to March 9) must follow the normal procedure for authorized absences. Contact registrarsoffice@johnabbott.qc.ca for more information.
