Medical Excuse for Class Absence Policy

The Juniata College Health and Wellness Center does not provide medical excuses or notes for minor illnesses or injuries that result in absence from class. In such cases, students should correspond directly with the faculty as soon as possible regarding the situation, preferably before a missed class.

In cases of such severe illness that hospitalization is required, that information will be made available, with the student's permission, to the appropriate professors.
