The Triage Program at Trinity Washington University assists students who have an emergency situation while enrolled in courses and expect to be absent from classes for an extended period of time.
“Emergency situations” typically include health related illnesses and hospital stays, funerals or a death in the family, or an extreme family crisis. Other situations may also be considered on a case by case basis.
Trinity recognizes that emergency situations do happen and wants to provide the opportunity for students in these situations to remain in classes if possible. If extensive class time has been missed, however, a student may be required to withdraw from a course or courses.
Students are responsible for contacting the CAS Academic Advising office to be considered for Triage services. Students can call or e-mail Associate Dean Carlota Ocampo at 202-884-9209 OcampoC@Trinitydc.edu, or Academic Advisor Tiara Lowe at 202-884-9279 email@example.com.
