Excuse Note Policy
We often receive requests from faculty or students for “excuse notes” if a student has missed class or academic work.
UHS does not supply this type of documentation. To protect confidentiality, ensure equitable treatment, and protect faculty from adjudicating health needs, the Provost and the Office of General Counsel recommend that faculty/instructors not ask for health documentation to be provided directly to them.
Unless you have received documented approval of flexibility on attendance from Disability Resources, the following applies: faculty members/instructors should work in partnership with Student Support Resources (SSR). When appropriate, your SSR representative will work with UHS, Counseling and Psychological Services, and Disability Resources to request and interpret health documentation and relay pertinent information about classroom attendance back to the faculty member.

Your privacy and right to confidentially access our services is our priority.
We are not permitted by law to disclose any medical information to anyone, including a parent or guardian, without the consent of the student unless the student is mentally incapacitated or threatens to harm themselves or someone else. Please see our Statement of Privacy Practices for our full policy.
