Health Services does not provide students with notes for any missed classes or exams due to their visit to Health Services. It is the responsibility of the student to notify their professors regarding any missed classes.
What to Do
E-mail your instructors as soon as possible. In each email, you should state how long the absence is expected to last. The instructor’s class absence policy will determine what effect the absence will have on your grade.
When you return to class, please communicate with your instructor regarding any work you missed during the absence. You are held accountable for missed work.
If you are unable to email your instructors due to hospitalization or major illness, you may contact Health Services at 718-862-7217 and we will assist with notification to the Dean of Students office.
If you have a doctor’s note supporting your absence or stating that you are allowed to return to class, you are encouraged to give a copy to each instructor upon your return.
COMMUNICABLE ILLNESSES (including COVID): If you are contagious, you should not attend class. The instructor’s class absence policy will determine what effect the absence will have on your grade.
If your absence will be longer than a week, you should contact Health Services at 718-862-7217 for a consultation regarding whether or not a medical leave for the remainder of the semester would be in your best interest.
