Stay Healthy, Hawks: Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates


Missing Classes

I encourage you to contact the Dean of Students office if:

  • A personal emergency has caused/will cause you to miss classes.
  • You are unable to complete a semester.

Although we will not excuse you from classes, my office will notify your professors and academic dean to apprise them of your situation. You will be asked to provide documentation verifying your emergency as soon as possible. The longer you wait to contact me, the harder it is for me to support you.

Failing Classes

If you are failing and are unsure how to proceed, contact us before the official drop date to see if there are resources available that you didn't know about. The sooner you let us know you are having difficulties, the better we can assist you.


If your situation requires you to consider withdrawing from one or all your classes, contact us as soon as possible so we can assist you with possible options, withdrawal procedures and re-enrolling procedures. Be cognizant of the official drop date and refer to the university catalog regarding withdrawals.

If you are considering dropping a class or a complete withdrawal for the semester, please read
Drop and Withdrawal Information

Questions - Ask SAC

SAC, the Student Assistance Center in SSCB, serves as a First Stop for general questions you need answered. You can stop by in-person, call or email.

Understanding Policy and Procedures

My office helps to set up community standards for an inclusive, welcoming, safe, and supportive environment.

As a student, your responsibilities include familiarizing yourself with all university-related policies and procedures. If you have questions about a UHCL policy or procedure, contact us.
