Academic Support Services

Assitance with Team Travel

WSU Athletics follows the University guidelines for class absences, as approved by the Faculty Senate. The University recognizes team athletics trips as university-sponsored activities, therefore, instructors are requested not to penalize the student-athlete if an authorized Class Absence Request Form has been filed with the instructor one week prior to the absence. It is the student-athleteís responsibility to make up all work missed. We encourage student-athletes to turn in work or take tests before the absence. As an element of our support role, academic support services assist student-athletes when their competitive seasons are underway and team travel is more common. Listed below are common tasks undertaken by the counseling staff as a measure to ensure that student-athletes have ample support when team travel becomes more prevalent.

If possible, student-athletes should reschedule all tests so they can be taken prior to departure or immediately upon return. However, if requested by the faculty member, a student-athlete may need to take a test while on a University-sponsored athletic team trip. If a student-athlete needs to take a test on the road, a member of the coaching staff is responsible for monitoring the studentís compliance with instructions provided by the faculty member (e.g., time limit, use of calculators, time and date of test, etc.).

The student-athlete must contact the professor to arrange with the professor to have the test available to be picked up prior to the teamís departure. The student-athlete should notify the teamís academic counselor of location and time to pick up the test. The academic counselor will arrange to have the test picked up and delivered to the coach in a sealed envelope prior to the teamís departure. The coach will return the completed exam in the sealed envelope to the team academic counselor immediately upon return from team trip. The counselor will return the test to the professor and, if necessary, notify the professor of any concerns regarding academic integrity.
