Medical Excuses and Withdrawals

OhioHealth Campus Care at Ohio University

Excused Absence Policy

OhioHealth Campus Care will only provide a medical excuse recommendation to students if the provider feels it is necessary due to illness or injury. Being seen at OhioHealth Campus Care does not necessarily warrant a medical excuse from class or work. We will NOT provide a medical excuse recommendation from classes, presentations, quizzes, exams or other academic responsibilities unless medically necessary. Medical recommendations do not alter stated course attendance requirements. OhioHealth Campus Care will not disclose the purpose of the medical visit in the excuse unless asked to do so by the student. 

Please note the following important information:

  • The medical excuse is a recommendation only
  • OhioHealth Campus Care will not back-date a Medical Excuse Recommendation form
  • There is no circumstance in which OhioHealth Campus Care will provide an excuse recommendation if your were not seen by a OhioHealth Campus Care provider
