Excuse Notes

The Student Health Center (SHC) does not provide excuse notes for illness or injury which may lead to class absences, the need for extensions on assignments or rescheduling of tests and exams. This allows us to dedicate our resources to providing care to our patients and is consistent with University policy, which states the health center does NOT provide “medical excuse” notes for students. 

To view the University’s full policy, please visit the Registrar’s website. If the health issue(s) prompting your visit to the SHC has impacted your academic responsibilities, contact your professors and respective dean to discuss your concerns.
