Policy: 

The UC Santa Cruz Academic Senate passed a policy in 2007 which states that instructors will not routinely require verification of illness/injury for students missing class.

 

The Student Health Center does not routinely provide verification notes for students.  A patient handout (No Note Policy) explaining this policy is located in the EMR references under patient support forms and is routinely provided to students presenting for verification notes.  SHC staff will use their discretion in providing documentation verifying dates of illness/injury and functional impairments as appropriate.
