Medical Excuse Policy

Medical notes are not provided for routine visits to the Health Center.

Students are responsible for notifying their professors of class absences related to illness or injury. Students may sign a release of information which gives consent to Health Services staff to confirm the date(s) of a student’s Health Center visit and, if the student requests, the reason for the visit(s) if a professor or Class Dean requests documentation. 

In the event of serious illness or extended absence from class, the Health Center will issue a medical note via email to the student and Class Dean indicating the student should be in touch with professors regarding the ramifications of missed classes and arrangements for missed work.  This medical note is up to the discretion of the treating medical provider and will only be issued if deemed necessary for recovery.
