Class Excuse Policy
The Pat Walker Health Center does not provide class excuses.
Because of federal health care privacy regulations, we cannot release protected health information (including dates and times services performed).
If an illness prevents a student from attending classes for an extended period of time, the Dean of Students will be notified with the student’s permission.
Students and faculty may find it useful to use the Absence from Class Form as a means to have appropriate communication about class absences.
