PUSH Does Not Provide "Excused Absence Notes"
March 29, 2017

The Purdue University Student Health Center (PUSH) does not provide "excused absence notes" for students missing class. The purpose of this practice is two-fold: 1. only the instructor can excuse a student from class, and 2. to eliminate unnecessary visits from students whose sole purpose is to obtain a class absence note for their professors, preventing a time slot from being used by a student seeking PUSH services. If an instructor requests evidence of a student seeking PUSH's services for an illness, the student may use the receipt provided to them at the time of their visit as proof. This receipt only provides documentation of the visit. The decision to excuse a student from class remains entirely up to each individual instructor. For further information regarding the Attendance Policy at Purdue University, please see Regulations, Classes, Attendance:
