Health Excuse and Note Policy

Many Manhattan College professors have a mandatory attendance policy for their classes and require documentation if the student misses one or more classes.

As stated in Manhattan College’s Course Catalog under Attendance Policy: “Reasonable accommodations for absences are recommended, but are solely at the discretion of the course instructor.”

Health Services does not write excuse or absent notes for any missed classes or exams due to their visit to Health Services. It is the responsibility of the student to speak with their professors regarding missed classes.

For prolonged illness, students are recommended to visit and get documentation from their primary care physician or outside medical care.
