Please call the Student Health Service during normal business hours, Monday-Friday 9 AM-5 PM, to schedule an appointment.

Medical Excuses


The Student Health Service does NOT issue medical excuses for students.


SHS will, however, provide evidence of the student’s clinic visit by printing a receipt verifying the date and time of the visit.   SHS will NOT release specific details about the student visits.   You can suggest such a receipt form one of the receptionists at the Front Desk.


It is the student’s responsibility to inform and negotiate with his/her professor or instructor in the event of a missed class or exam.


The Student Health Service will, however, issue a medical excuse under rare, extreme circumstances.   This must be approved by the Director of Student Health Service.
