Excuse Notes

Know what to do if you need to miss class due to illness or injury.

It is the policy of Health Services that we do not provide excuse notes for absences from class. If you miss class due to illness you must contact your professor according to your class policies.  

If you are seriously injured or ill and require emergency care or admission to the hospital, the Health Services Center will contact the Office of Student Academic Services and Retention for you.  

Medical leave may be initiated by the student if they believe that physical and/or psychological health issues are significantly interfering with their ability to succeed. Students must contact the Office of Academic Services and Retention at 516.877.3150 to discuss this issue.
