Just as the University does not usually require that its employees provide a written medical excuse for absences due to illness, most instructors do not demand that students provide medical excuses for their absences due to illness or injury.
If a student needs documentation for a professor due to an absence from class for health reasons and the student was seen at our clinic, UHCS will provide a student with a verification of health visit slip. This slip only verifies that the student was seen by a health practitioner or the reception office.
It remains that student's responsibility to notify his/her professors in advance of any absence due to illness and to make arrangements to make up any work.
If a student was treated elsewhere and needs verification, it is the student's responsibility to obtain a form from that provider.
