As life is, there will be issues that arise. Depending on the course work missed, you will have opportunities specific to the work that you will need to make up. If it is a special speaker/program, you would have a severe gap in your education, and a hard time finding another course that you would need to take to replace that segment. If it were general course work, you would have to pay an instructor to work with you on the material to make sure that you are “up to speed” on that segment.
