Would your sister be willing to help cover her travel expenses? 

Most professors are flexible if you tell them advance about missing classes and will work with students about making up work (some aren’t, but it’s worth a shot!).  If it’s just one class, and not mid-terms or finals,  it might be doable to miss a class, if your daughter was willing to do that.

When in September is the wedding? If it’s early enough, I doubt if she’d be missing TOO much if she had to miss a day….

if you have a year to plan, I’d think you could save up the travel funds between now and then to get her home for the wedding

So wedding is in september then? what program and what school is she (likely) going to be in? in my experiences with big canadian institutions, sciences it’s hard to accomodate lab-rescheduling – you get one per semester per class no exceptions, engineering same thing. missing lectures is less of a big deal, which makes it easier if she’s in arts or commerce (no labs!). there aren’t that many assignments at the beginning, and it’s easy to get the lecture material, either from being posted online, or from photocopying a classmate’s. also: most schools you sign up for classes in the summer (june/july) and labs are *rarely* on fridays (there are some if there’s overflow, but monday-thursday is definitely more common)

but a 24hr drive x2 sounds ROUGH.
