Sick Notes

Do you need a sick note to be excused from a class or to be given an extension on a PSet or exam? Here’s what you need to know:

MIT Medical does not provide notes or excuses for classes, academic work, or exams impacted by medical issues. If you have an injury or illness that has impacted your studies, please contact Student Support Services at 617-253-4861.

If we are contacted by Student Support Services or the Office of the Dean for Undergraduate Education, MIT Medical can confirm that your medical excuse is legitimate, but we will not share any specific medical information without your permission. Student Support Services can help you communicate with your professors, instructors, TAs, or academic departments.
