Medical Excuses and Withdrawals

Campus Care

Excused Absence Policy

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