Student Responsibilities

Student Responsibilities

  • Students must arrive on time for their schedule appointments, or call x1328 to cancel in advance.
  • Students who are ill and miss classes are responsible for notifying their professors concerning missed classes/assignments. Excuses are not provided by Health Services.
  • Laboratory testing is an important part of a physical examination. Some lab tests can be completed at Health Services; other lab tests must be sent to an off campus facility. There is a fee for lab tests, which you may submit to your insurance company. We recommend that you call Health Services within one week after a test was sent for analysis to obtain results.
  • Students need to understand their fee structure for health-related charges.
  • Some charges from Health Services might be covered by your home or student insurance (prescription medications, lab tests, off-campus visits). Because every plan is different, we send a report to your box of these charges and you are responsible for sending these to your insurance. If you have Earlham student insurance, these forms should be taken to the Business Office in Carpenter Hall to be filed. Do not throw them away. Your parents do not get a copy unless you send it to them.
