Class Absences

The Health Center staff will provide medical excuses for missed classes, depending on the nature of the illness. If a student is told that he/she should not attend classes, the student must notify his/her advisor and/or faculty.

Faculty can verify a student's visit to the Health Center, but information about the reason for a visit is not released without the student's written consent. Information is also withheld from parents, friends or anyone else unless the student has given written consent for information to be released. Confidentiality is strictly enforced.

In cases of serious illness involving hospitalization or strict bed rest, the nursing staff will notify the Student Affairs Office and the academic dean.
