Can I talk to a Student Health Center staff member about my student’s health visit?

Medical information may not be released without the written consent of the patient. Students can sign a consent form allowing discussion of his or her health with parents/guardians. If a consent is not on file and parents/guardians have questions or concerns, Health Center staff can answer generalized questions, though cannot violate patient confidentiality which is protected by law. Students are responsible for notifying parents/guardians of their condition, except in the case of a serious emergency.

How does my student obtain an excusal for class or work due to a health problem?

Students requiring a note of excusal will need to make an appointment for evaluation of the condition. Individuals with observable signs of moderate to severe illness, disease or injury will receive a letter of excusal. Please note, professors and/or employers are not obligated to accept the excusal from the Student Health Center provider. Persons without observable signs of poor health or those with mild signs of illness, disease or injury will not receive an excusal.
