Class Absence

Health Services does not provide routine sick notes to students due to brief absences from class because of illness or fatigue. Students are encouraged to discuss absences directly with their faculty member(s) and take personal responsibility for class attendance decisions. In the event of illness due to a communicable disease or contagious illness (other than a routine cold) that necessitates class absence for public health reasons, Health Services will notify the student’s faculty member(s) of the medical absence directly via the university email system.
