The Capital University Center for Health and Wellness does not issue medical excuses for missed classes. Students are responsible for notifying professors of their absence from class due to short term illness/injury. However, if the student signs a Release of Information form after their ill visit, professors may call the Center for Health and Wellness to verify attendance of the visit only and the reason for absence will not be disclosed.
THE STUDENT IS RESPONSIBLE FOR CONTACTING EACH PROFESSOR TO DISCUSS MISSED CLASSWORK
Students age 18 and older have a legal right to receive confidential services at the Center for Health and Wellness. Therefore, students must sign a Release of Confidential Information form if they would like anybody outside of the CHW (including their parents) to receive information about their health care (with exception for a health emergency). We comply with the Family Education Rights & Privacy Act (FERPA).
Students age 17 and younger cannot receive medical or counseling services unless their parent/legal guardian signs a Consent to Treatment form.
If you would like copies of the Release of Confidential Information or Consent to Treatment sent or faxed to you, please contact us.Parents, if you have any concerns about your student’s well-being, we encourage you to contact the CHW, the Dean of Students office (614-236-6611), Residential and Commuter Life (614-236-6137), or Public Safety (614-236-6666).
