Medical Excuse Policy
The Student Health Center will not provide medical excuses for missed classes, exams, or assignments. This policy is based on our limited resources, which are better dedicated to providing health care; the inability for us to make valid determinations about illnesses or injuries students may have effectively managed through self-care; and our commitment to student privacy.
Exceptions to this policy may occur if, in the judgment of a health care provider at the Student Health Center, the student will be out of class for an extended period of time due to a serious illness or medical condition. Examples of serious illnesses or medical conditions may include but are not limited to:
- Mononucleosis, which may require bed rest and/or removal from campus
- Hospitalization and/or surgery
- Severe injury or illness requiring prolonged bed rest
- Highly contagious diseases (chicken pox, measles)
If required, proof of your visit can be printed from your Patient Portal.
This policy is consistent with the recommendations of the American College Health Association and is similar to other colleges and universities.
