Absence Note for Class

No generic "seen and treated" notes will be issued to students from the Student Health Center. The Student Health Center will issue absence notices to students only if it is evident to the clinical provider that the student should not be in class due to illness. In all other circumstances, students should communicate directly with their professors about their absences from class due to illness, or other reasons for which they are requesting special consideration.

Note: When the Student Health Center or the Office of the Dean of Students agrees to issue absence notices to students or faculty, these notes do not excuse the absence, nor do they guarantee the student will be permitted to make up tests or other missed assignments. Only the student's professors can make those decisions. The absence notice simply documents that the student's illness or other circumstances indicate that they are unable to participate in class for the time period designated.
