Medical Excuse Policy

Student Health Services does not provide medical excuses for missed classes, exams, or assignments.  “The student has the responsibility to inform his/her faculty member, whenever possible in advance of an absence that is caused by circumstances beyond his/her control.  In the event of serious sudden illness or accident, students may contact Student Health Services.   Notification of this emergency to faculty may be made on the student’s behalf with a signed release of information.” (Albion College Student Handbook, 2014-15 pg. 18).

After visiting Student Health Services, students may request a card verifying their visit.  This card IS NOT an excuse, and does not give a diagnosis. 

It is the expectation of students to discuss absences from classes, exams, or missing assignments directly with their faculty.  This policy is consistent with the recommendations of the American College Health Association and is similar to other colleges. 

Further questions?   Contact Student Health Services at ext. 0220.

Student Health Services Payment Policy

Safe Sex?

There really is no such thing as “safe sex”. Sexual activity of any type, eg. oral, vaginal, anal, genital-to-genital contact without penetration, can put you at risk for contracting an sexually transmitted disease or STI  even if you wear a condom or use a dental dam.  Both Condoms and dental dams are available free of charge in the lobby area of Student Health Services.

Use a condom or a dental dam. Always. For any type of sex.

For additional information on Safer Sex go to www.albion.edu/shs and click on the Self-Care Guide, for testing options click on Sexually Transmitted Diseases on the left navigation bar.  More questions? Call Student Health Services at x0220.
