Faculty members are encouraged to accommodate students who are ill with flu, understanding they will need to miss class while ill. On average, the illness lasts approximately 7 days.

The Health Center has a long-established policy that it does not verify illnesses with sick notes. Please do not refer students to the Health Center for this purpose. Referrals to the Health Center or a personal physician to meet medical needs are always encouraged.

Faculty who may have the flu should see Guidance for Employees.
