McMaster Student Absence Form (M.S.A.F.)

M.S.A.F. is a self-reporting tool for undergraduate students to report absences due to minor medical or personal concerns that last up to 3 days. It provides the ability to request accommodations for any missed academic work worth equal to or less than 24%. This form should be filled out immediately when you are about to return to class after your absence. You may submit a maximum of one MSAF for missed academic work per term. It is the student’s responsibility to follow up with their instructor immediately regarding the nature of the accommodation.

This tool cannot be used during any final examination period.

MSAF is located in your Mosaic Student Centre in the drop-down menu, ‘other academic…’.
