My school just changed their stance on excused clinical absences. Now, instead of having a make-up day or paperwork.....you will get an incomplete for clinical until you enroll in a " clinical practicum" one day course that is the same amount of credits as the class you are in. FOR ONE DAY!
Now this really sucks for me...because I have clinicals wed/thurs and the 2nd wed I can't be at clinical- because I got a subpoena to testify in court that day ( my neighbor beat up his wife and I witnessed a part of it). I called the DA's office and told them my clinical circumstance and they told me that i HAVE to be there.
*sigh*. So my class is 5 credits so for missing tat day that I can't help ( by law) I have to pay near $600 to take a ONE DAY class.
I know they must have their reasons...but this REALLY hurts financially! Now I know some schools
don't even allow ANY excuses...but by law I can't NOT show at court *sigh*
