Medical confidentiality is assured for all care and services at the Student Health Center, except where the safety of the students or others is at risk, or as required by law, such as mandated reporting of certain infectious diseases and abuse.
The Student Health Center does not issue medical excuse notes for academic deficiencies. In the event of illness or injury that is expected to result in significant academic disruption, the student is advised to contact his or her professor(s) as soon as possible to notify them. Whether the disruption is a missed test, late assignment, or absence from class, early notification is important.
Visit the Health Center Statements page for more information about confidelitality, privacy, patients' rights and responsibilities, and our "excuse note" policy.
