Medical Excuse Notes

As stated in the University Catalog, it remains the policy of Philadelphia University that written medical notes or excuses are not provided by the staff of Student Health Services for a student’s absence or lateness to class.

It is the responsibility of the student to discuss these matters with the appropriate faculty member.

Any student that is unable to attend classes for an extended period of time (at least 3 consecutive days) related to a documented medical condition should notify the office of the Dean of Students at 215-951-2740 or
