Each student-athlete obtains a letter from the Student-Athlete Success Center at
the start of their travel season. This letter is to inform faculty of a
potential time conflict with their class due to athletic competition. At times,
student-athletes participating in Intercollegiate Athletics will be absent from
regularly scheduled class session. While we fully understand the importance of
classroom attendance, we respectfully request cooperation in accordance with
University policy, (Faculty-Staff Handbook, VII.B.2.), to accommodate
student-athlete participation in an official University event.
Each student-athlete is responsible for notifying faculty in advance of any
potential absence and making the proper arrangements to make up missed work in a
reasonable amount of time. The Student-Athlete Success Center staff is willing
to assist in the coordination of any missed assignments or exams. We appreciate
the assistance of faculty as Binghamton University student-athletes strive to
achieve excellence both in the classroom and in their athletic endeavors.
