What should I do if I am called for jury duty and it will interfere with my work or class schedule?

You must comply with the jury summons you’ve received. Review your summons to see if you meet any of the criteria for being excused from jury service, or postponing jury service, and follow the procedures outlined in your summons. Promptly notify your supervisor and/or faculty members if you will be missing work or class due to jury service.
