Can I get a copy of my medical records?
Yes, you may request a copy of your medical records from the clinic at any time; however, your medical records are confidential and require your written consent to be released.

Is there a cost to get copies of medical records? 
Yes, there is a charge of $1.00 for the first page and $0.25 for each additional page for all copies made of medical records. This fee covers the labor and materials to retrieve and copy records, any fax toll calls, and/or postage costs.

No copy charges will be assessed when SHS refers for care in the community.

Can I get a “doctor’s note” for missing class? 
No, the clinic does not write notes excusing students from missed class(es). We do, however, offer two options:

  • A receipt of your charges can be printed to provide documentation of your visit.
  • An Authorization for Release of Medical Information can be completed for the class(es) missed, so your professor(s) can call the clinic to speak with the Nurse Practitioner to confirm your appointment and/or diagnosis.

You may request one of options above from the Student Health Services clinic front desk.
