Class Excuse Policy

If a student is absent from class for health reasons, it is the student's responsibility to discuss this directly with the faculty member. The Student Health Service does not issue class excuses. Students may sign a written release of information form to allow professors to verify that the student was seen at the Student Health Service on a specific date, or during a designated period of time.

If a student is hospitalized, suffers from a prolonged illness or is recovering from a serious injury, the Student Health Service will communicate with the appropriate dean's office after obtaining permission from the student.
