HyBridge Student Attendance Notification Process for Fall 2020

For the Fall 2020 semester classes will be conducted via the HyBridge Education Model, a hybrid learning experience that incorporates remote, interactive instruction and on-campus in-person experiences that enhance student learning, preserving both the safety of students and faculty and delivering a high-quality educational experience. 

Students are expected to attend these on-campus, face-to-face enrichment activities unless their circumstances warrant otherwise. Students may file a notification of non-attendance for medical reasons either at the start of the semester or whenever a situation arises necessitating this. If the campus closes by government order because of a COVID-19 outbreak at any point in the semester, all on-campus, face-to-face enrichment activities will cease and notifications  will be unnecessary.

Notification Examples

  1. The student will attend Marywood only as an online student for the Fall 2020 semester.

  2. The student is immunocompromised or has another condition that places them in a higher risk group for COVID-19.

  3. The student lives with someone who is in a high-risk group for COVID-19.

  4. Other (please explain).


Students who do not attend the in-person, face-to-face enrichment activities should do the equivalent online activities provided by their faculty.

For short-term absences from on-campus, in-person experiences due to temporary illness or other reasons, students shall follow the attendance policies and procedures contained in their course syllabi. As usual, absences will be considered as either excused or unexcused based on the policy of the department as described in the course syllabus. Students are strongly encouraged to promptly report an absence to their instructor.
