Important Information Regarding Documentation of Illness

Attendance/participation policies related to each course should be outlined in class syllabi and communicated to students by their professors. Ultimately, attending classes is the responsibility of the student. The Wellness Center cannot excuse you from class but in certain circumstances can provide documentation through the Starfish program to your professors upon which they can base their decisions about whether your absence should be excused.

The Wellness Center may send a Starfish notification if a student presents with a fever, a contagious illness and/or hospitalization/surgery. There may also be extenuating circumstances in which a  Starfish notification is issued.
