When a student is ill, Student Health Services supports meaningful conversation between the faculty and student. These conversations provide an excellent communication skill-building opportunity for students and help identify how they can fulfill their academic responsibilities while working around an illness.   We encourage appropriate use of health care resources and do not routinely provide excuses for students who miss class due to illness.  

As a reminder: Patient care is confidential.  If there is something specific your student would like Student Health Services to discuss with you as their family member, a release of information form is required.

Student Health Services is located in the lower level of Carkoski Commons, directly below the Carkoski Dining Facility.  For more information about the services provided, please call 507-389-6276 or visit our website at:
