Medical Excuse Policy

Students who are not feeling well are encouraged to contact their professors regarding class absence, missed work, and make up work.

The Student Health Center does not issue "notes" for classes missed. When a student is advised by the Health Center to stay out of class due to sickness or injury, the student should contact their professors to let them know they will miss class.  If necessary, the student may contact the Dean of Students office for an e-mail to be sent to the professors of classes the student will not be attending for that day.

With the student's permission, the Health Center will verify if the student was seen at the Health Center on a specific date, however, we will not discuss the reason for the visit.

Any questions regarding this policy should be directed to the Director of the Student Health Center or the Dean of Students Office.
