Class Excuse Policy Due To Medical Reasons

The Perrella Health Center does not provide written excuses/notes to students for classes missed for appointments at the Health Center or for short-term illnesses/injuries. It is the student's responsibility to communicate directly with their professors regarding classes missed and completion of assignments. A Perrella Health Center medical provider may, as part of their clinical management, recommend deferment of the student's participation in certain activities and other appropriate measures for health reasons. In these circumstances a notice will be written at the discretion of the medical provider. The Perrella Health Center will, with student authorization, verify an illness or injury to a faculty member if the faculty member wishes to call. For confidentiality purposes the nature of the illness or injury will not be disclosed.

For any questions or concerns contact the Perrella Health Center at 607-431-4120.
