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 authorization of class absence notes for students.  The clinical staff, at their discretion can provide absence excuses and functional impairments as appropriate.  A patient handout (Verification of Visit) explaining this policy and providing space for verifying dates and times of SHS appointments can be routinely provided to students by any staff member.
