Does the UNI Student Health Clinic provide medical/work excuses to students?

Effective September 1, 2009 the UNI Student Health Clinic made the decision to no longer provide medical excuses for missed classes, exams, assignments or work. This practice is similar to other universities and is consistent with the recommendations of the American College Health Association.

The decision to change our policy is based on our limited resources, which are better dedicated to providing health care. Additionally, students may have effectively managed through self care and thus we are unable to make valid determinations about illnesses or injuries. Requiring written excuses would make many students come to the Student Health Clinic only after they are better just to get a note for their professor.

The Student Health Clinic encourages students to make mature decisions when they are too sick to attend class. Class attendance is an administrative matter between faculty and students. If a student misses class due to an illness, injury or an emergency, the student should contact their professor, preferably before the class or exam takes place. Students should communicate with him/her either via phone or e-mail. It is the student's responsibility to work with their professor on missed assignments or exams.

An ill student is the only one able to determine if they are too ill to fulfill expected academic responsibilities. The student must honestly decide whether or not they can do their work and take responsibility for this. Furthermore, the academic relationship between the student and professor must remain in the classroom. The professor is in the best position to know the student and to judge the students academic performance. It can be helpful to encourage the student to be as open as possible in sharing with you how their condition has been affecting their studies. Together faculty and students can work to a resolution on the missed assignments or exams. All decisions about the impact of an absence, as well as any arrangements for making up work, rest with the instructors.

Students should make every attempt to work directly with their professor. If a student needs additional assistance, after addressing the concern with a professor, they can go to the department head. If a student still feels they need assistance, they may contact the dean of the College. If students have exhausted all of these other options, they should contact the Provost's office.
