Student Health does not provide routine written medical excuses for short-term absences from class or missed deadlines due to illness or injury. This practice policy is recommended by health services staff and approved by the Student Health Advisory Committee, the Office of the Vice President for Student Life, and the Office of the Provost.

Part of the mission of Student Health is to teach appropriate healthcare consumerism. The practice of providing medical excuses seems to send mixed messages to students about the appropriate use of healthcare resources.

Information on steps to take regarding an absence from class can be found on the Registrar's website.

An additional resource for you is to sign up for MyChart. MyChart contains your medical record and other health related information. MyChart allows you to print documentation of your visit to Student Health, or other University of Iowa medical clinics. You are not required to disclose any private information about your visit.

Please contact us if you have further questions or require assistance.
