Absence Notification for Field Experiences/Internships

Students undergoing a Field Experience or Internship must use the below form to submit their absences to the ISA office. Take note that students are required to notify the ISA office of any and all absences for the duration of their field placement. Before submitting this form, please take note of the following:

  • You must still notify your Co-operating Teacher(s) of your absence(s). Your Field Supervisor will receive an automatic notice of your absence upon the submission of this form. 
  • Per the ISA's absence policy, all missed time in the field must be made up, with some exceptions. Your Placement Coordinator will keep track of your field-related absences and notify you towards the end of your field placement how much time must be made up and your new end date. 
  • Course conflicts with a field placement will not be grounds for an excused absence from the field.
  • Any absences lasting longer than 2 days will require a valid medical note which should be submitted to your Placement Coordinator via placements.education [at] mcgill.ca
