Information Required in Certificates from Health Professionals
A student who requests permission to drop courses, to withdraw from university studies, to have examinations deferred or to obtain other waivers of university, departmental or course regulations based on health issues is required by the university to provide, in support of the request, a certificate from a health professional in the form of a note or letter.
This should be in the form of the Student Health Certificate. If a note or letter is provided other than in the form of the Student Health Certificate, the submission must be on letterhead. Such certificates must be sufficiently specific to allow a proper consideration of a student's case. The university requires that all such certificates must be signed by the health professional, must confirm the specific dates on which the student visited the health professional and must include details on the following:
- The degree to which the health issue (or treatment, in the case of medication, for example) is likely to have affected the student’s ability to study, attend classes, or sit examinations;
- The length of time over which the student’s abilities were likely hampered by the condition (e.g., recurring and severe back pain over a two-month period would likely have a more adverse effect on studies than a single episode of back pain requiring bed rest for a week);
- The fitness of the student to resume studies (it is in the student’s best interest not to return to studies prematurely).
Confidentiality: The University respects the privacy of students and will keep confidential all such certificates. A student should request that the health professional retain a copy of such a certificate in case the certificate needs to be verified or reissued at a later date.
