Student Health Services does not provide written letters for extensions related
to missing academic work due to illness. If the circumstance involves a
short time, 1-2 days, talk to your professor directly and explain the
circumstances. If you are unable to reach a reasonable understanding,
contact the Dean of Students by email to explain the situation and they can
assist you. If you have a significant or severe medical illness that
will affect your long term academic work, and need medical evaluation and
treatment, please make an appointment with Student Health Services. If
necessary, health information will be shared (with informed consent), to the Deans Office regarding your illness.
