Medical Excuse Policy

Health Services does not provide medical excuses for missed classes, exams, assignments, or work on/off campus. The decision for our policy is based on our limited resources, which are better dedicated to providing health care; the inability for us to make valid determinations about illnesses or injuries students may have managed through self care at home; and our commitment to student privacy.

Student Insurance

The UIS Student Insurance Plan is an affordable, high-quality insurance program, designed to meet the needs of our students, with optional coverage available for dependents.

All Students should visit Academic Health Plans to review the policy. The AHP website can be used to find information about benefits, providers, prescriptions, and more!
