13 Excuse Emails You Send to Your Professor When You Miss Class

We all skip class and we all need a solid alibi to send our professors.

Saying that you are too tired to get up and go to class is a bad excuse and doesn't really fly so here are some that might. Just make sure that it isn't a test day.

The Classic "I'm Sick"

Giphy

A fever will make you seem like an unfocused student and they don't want that so fake a low grade fever and skip that boring bio lecture.

Doctor/Dentist Appointment

Giphy

Always a winner. You can't help that the only appointment they had open was during class but you NEED to go. Your health is 'very' important.

I have an interview

Giphy

It can be an interview for a job or an internship, you really don't need to elaborate but it is always a winner. It makes the teacher think that you are doing something productive instead of sitting around finishing your binge session on Netflix.

Organizational Commitment

Giphy

I give tours on campus so I have used this excuse a few times and all of my professors are okay with it since it is for the school. Extra points to you if it is for a school sponsored org.

"I have another meeting with another professor"

Giphy

They can't be mad if you have a professor who only comes to campus on Wednesdays and only has office hours during class. If you need to talk you need to talk.

"Sorry prof, I have jury duty"

Giphy

I wouldn't use this if your professor requires paperwork to prove an absence but if they don't and you want to get out of class for a few days, this is a sure winner.

An Accident

Giphy

A fender bender, a big accident, whatever just make sure your lie is small enough that they won't be looking for it on the 10 o'clock news.

Claim a BIG Illness

Giphy

Lice, chicken pox, food poisoning, anything big enough that makes them feel like begging you to stay home.

A Medical Test

Giphy

If you are in the education program, you need to have a TB every so often so use that as an excuse. If you aren't going to be a teacher, find another minor and relevant test that you can use on your teacher.

Traffic Jam

Giphy

With the exception of freshman (and any info that you've shared), your professor has no idea that you live on or off campus. There could have been some bad traffic and it isn't your fault that you got to campus right as class ended.

Family Emergency

Giphy

Sudden illness, death, there are endless possibilities.

Car Break In

Giphy

I know there are a lot of random break ins to cars at my school so using that as an excuse and saying that you have to deal with the police is always a safe bet.

A Mental Health Moment

Giphy

This can be a lie or a valid excuse but sometimes you just need a you day and telling them that you need a mental health break is a good excuse that they can't refute.

TikTok Made Me Buy It: Flawless's Skincare Fridge

I bought and tested one of TikTok's popular products so you don't have to.

I spend a lot of time on TikTok and I never know whether the products I see are worth it or not, especially when I'm looking at the price. For Christmas, my aunt got me a gift card to Ulta. I didn't know what to buy. I have way too many palettes and lipsticks. I have my essentials. What else could I need? Then it hit me that I saw a lot of people these past few months showing off their skincare fridges. So, the second I thought of it I went on the Ulta app and bought it. So, here are my thoughts.

I Asked Instagram How 2020 Was, And Maybe It Wasn't The Worst Year Ever

2020 is a year to remember but it's not as bad as we made it out to be.

It's finally 2021 and we're honestly all just happy that 2020 is over. I decided to ask my Instagram followers how they felt about 2020 and the results were a little more mixed up than expected.

Ever since I watched "How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days," I've been a major Matthew McConaughey fan. I've seen most of his movies, and I definitely got way too excited when he finally made an Instagram! So when he announced he would be releasing a memoir titled "Greenlights," I knew I absolutely had to get my hands on this book. And so did the rest of the world, as the book began to flood social media.

Truthfully, I would much rather read a fiction book and dive into another world than read a nonfiction book - even if it is one of my favorite celebrities. But I had a feeling this book wouldn't disappoint or bore.
