Medical Excuse Policy

The physician or physician extender can grant excused absences from classes for the time that the patient is being seen in the Student Health Center. Extensions of absences from classes for medical reasons are made on an individual basis only. 

The Health Center does not provide excuses covering dates and times for which the patient has been absent from class but has not been seen in the health center. 

Students should refrain from waiting to be seen through scheduled class periods or examinations. Exceptions for excuses will only be made for valid medical reasons as determined by the medical staff. 

Our medical staff, with pertinent dates and times entered, will sign the excuses provided by the Student Health Center.
