Excused Absence Documentation Form

Team members — please allow THREE business days from the day you submit your request for a memo for delivery. Also, if your instructors prefer to receive one note with all your tournaments for the term and you know your travel schedule, submit all the tournaments together and make a note in the comments and I will send a concise note.

This form is for UF Speech & Debate Team members file with the Dial Center administrative office to have a memo sent to their instructors documenting travel for classes they may miss while participating on a scholastic team.

Students should also contact their instructors before the memos are requests and make arrangements for any missed classes and work.
