Student Medical Services Policy on Excuse Notes

  • You must be seen within a reasonable time relative to the missed exam, project, class, conference, work, etc.
  • Excuse notes are given at the discretion of the SMS staff based on their medical findings and professional assessments.
  • Excuse notes are only given when care is received through SMS. Please acquire a note from the place of service when care is received elsewhere.
  • The SMS staff does not have the authority to exempt students from class, exams, etc. Such final decisions will be made by the professor, faculty, department, etc.

An appointment is preferred, but if one is not available, you may be seen as a Walk-In. Please be advised, there may be a wait for Walk-In based services due to scheduled appointments.
