Health Services Mission

The mission of Champlain's Student Health Services is to provide health care through preventative, diagnostic, therapeutic, and rehabilitative services. These services are focused not only on the individual, but also on the College community as a whole. The health staff is dedicated to providing humane care and competent treatment, along with responsible referrals when indicated.

Class Absences

Illness and injury may occasionally impact a student's ability to attend class or to complete assignments. Students in this situation are urged to notify their instructors immediately when an illness or injury prevents them from attending a class or completing work. The Health Center does not provide written medical excuses for class absences. Students may request documentation to verify the date and time they were seen at the Health Center, but no further information will be provided. Students are responsible for making up all work missed.

This approach allows for students, as young adults, to advocate for themselves and take responsibility for their health and academics. This also encourages instructors to communicate directly with students if concerns arise.
