Makeup Policy Information

  • CLASS & SKILLS LAB ABSENCES: Students who are absent or tardy must make up the time they missed in class or labs in 15-minute intervals.
  • CLINICAL ABSENCES: Students who are absent or tardy must make up the time they missed in clinical for an entire day in different available clinical with openings.

Makeup Time Is Not Guaranteed

Makeup time is offered, dependent upon availability, at no additional cost for occasional absences. The availability of makeup time is impacted by a number of factors: the availability in other regularly scheduled classes; OSBN regulations that set student-instructor class ratios and specify how missed time must be made up; and BOLI employment regulations, which preclude makeup time being scheduled during break or lunch periods.

Scheduling Makeup Time

Makeup time is arranged through the school business office. Students will be contacted by the business office Student Services Coordinator or Clinical Coordinator to review makeup options and schedule makeup time. Makeup may not occur in a timely manner. Openings are time-sensitive, and students may only receive a few hours’ notice in advance. It is the student’s responsibility to contact the school as soon as possible, but no later than within one (1) business day, after being contacted by the business office to discuss their availability to schedule makeup time. Students should never contact their instructors, or call the clinical facility, regarding missed time, tardiness, or scheduling makeup time.
