Purdue University Student Health Services (PUSH) does not provide excused absence notes for students who miss class. Students should communicate with their professor as soon as possible, in the event of an illness, so that they can work together for a positive solution to their absence.

Treatment of Psychological Diagnoses at PUSH
October 30, 2018

The Purdue University Student Health Service (PUSH) recognizes that psychological concerns and psychotropic medication are issues for a number of students and families. PUSH also recognizes that the resources of PUSH medical providers, within the scope of their clinical practice, have the training and skillset to provide limited services to students who present with psychiatric diagnoses and are in need of short term medication. PUSH providers may write one, 14-30 day, prescription for a student who has been on the same medication in the past three months with no untoward effects. PUSH providers may evaluate a student requesting new medication when the student brings in clinical records or summary from a previous therapist or psychiatrist (and in the case of ADHD, diagnostic testing). PUSH medical providers cannot provide the on-going level of care that students may need for a psychological concern. PUSH medical providers cannot provide care to students who have been hospitalized within the last 6 months, who may not be responding to psychotropic medication, or who are thinking of harming self or others. These students will be referred from PUSH medical providers to a higher level of care.
