Campus Safety Training:

Our annual platform for education and prevention training, commonly known as Not Anymore will now be called Campus Safety Training. This change will also be reflected on students' Wingspan Channel, as it will no longer show “Not Anymore” as an option to click on. Instead, “Campus Safety Training”  will be in its’ place. Please call our office at 803/323-4503 for any questions. 

All students have to complete Campus Safety Training every academic year, regardless of age, sex, or degree status.

Absence Notification Form/Instructions

Students may find themselves missing classes due to different circumstances. The Absence Notification Form is designed to serve as a resource and central point of contact for students who need to notified instructors of their absence(s). The purpose of the Absence Notification Form is to verify, document, and report a student absence. 

*If only 1 day missed-Do not fill out this Form* - Please speak with your instructor directly.

Student Absence Notification Form Fall 2022-Spring 2023 (MS Forms-Log in using WU credentials) 

All absence e-mails will go directly to the student and the student will be responsible for forwarding that information to their instructors or WU employer. For Students Diagnosed with COVID - Instead of an absence form, the Dean of Students office (DoSo) will get the e-mail from the Center for Student Wellness (CSW), which the DoSo will send to the student.
