Relief for Missed Course Work

| June 3, 2020
Submitted by Nicole Buston

If you are requesting relief for missed course work worth 25% and higher (or if you’ve used your self-submitted MSAF for coursework less than 25%), you must fill out and submit a Notification of Absence form, which can be found on our website. Please send completed forms to within five (5) business days of the missed course work.

If your missed coursework is worth 24% or less and you have not yet used your self-submitted MSAF for the term, please submit your absence on the McMaster Student Absence Form page within three (3) calendar days from the day(s) of the missed course work.

If you have any questions about our missed course work policy or approval of absences, please contact Nicole Buston at
