ILLNESS & ABSENCE

A residence hall staff member should be made aware of a student’s illness as soon as possible. Students who cannot go to the dining area should be checked at the Health Center. At that time, Food Services will be notified of a student’s confinement to the residence hall. Arrangements can then be made for sick trays.

The Health Center does not issue medical excuses for missed classes due illness. It is the student’s responsibility to inform professors about absences due to illness.

Students who suffer from chronic conditions or who must take medication regularly should notify the Health Center so that the information may be kept on file and to assist in ongoing care.
