Medical Excuse Policy
Health Services does not provide students with notes to take to their faculty confirming medical treatment. Issues of developmental, privacy and workload factors inform this policy. Students are responsible for providing faculty the grounds for the absences, and for conforming to the attendance requirements of particular courses. Students, like the rest of us, are protected from having medical information released without their permission. At the time of treatment, students are encouraged to email their professors regarding their absence and "cc" us in the note. That allows us to confirm the visit and speak to faculty if requested.
Students under treatment for health reasons outside of Student Health Services (SHS) may bring documentation to SHS to be submitted to their health record. This documentation will assist in the support SHS may offer to the dean regarding missed classes/work. FERPA / HIPAA privacy act
