Student athletes represent the University at a variety of tournaments and contests. It is University policy that if these athletic events coincide with scheduled classes and/or exams, student athletes may request advanced permission to make up missed work or take exams at another time or location.
Student athletes may only request such accommodation with the approval of their team Head Coach and the Senior Associate Athletics Director, Jacqueline Blackett. Having received such permission, student athletes will provide instructors the Intercollegiate Athletics Academic Absence Notification Form on which instructors may detail arrangements for making up missed work or exams. Student athletes will then submit the form to Jacqueline Blackett, Senior Associate Athletics Director, Columbia University Athletics Department.
The College asks that instructors approve reasonable accommodations requested by student athletes representing the teams listed below.
Instructors who have questions or concerns regarding the athletic commitments of any enrolled students may contact Jacqueline Blackett, Senior Associate Athletics Director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Intercollegiate Sports Teams:
Please note that Club Sports are not part of the Intercollegiate Athletics program and students participating in these teams are not eligible to request academic accommodations arising from these commitments.
