All health records are confidential and require a student's signature for release.  Due to privacy laws, Health Services cannot discuss medical information about an illness or treatment. Parents and faculty are only notified of a student’s condition if it is a true emergency or if the student gives consent.

Health Services does not provide excuse notes for illness or visits to Health Services that may have led to missed classes or exams.

This policy resembles those of most Universities and is consistent with the recommendations of the American College Health Association, CDC and Rhode Island Department of Health. Health Services recommends that students contact their professors if they are ill and unable to attend class, complete assignments, or take an exam.  It is the student's responsibility to communicate directly and proactively with faculty of conditions that interfere with these processes. This policy reflects our respect for our students' medical privacy and our educational mission to help our students become independent stewards of their own health care. There are also many patient confidentiality laws that must be observed.  Requiring a written note from Health Services causes students who would not normally be in Health Services to possibly be exposed to more infectious diseases and also makes students more likely to go to class when they are ill.  When you are sick, you should stay in your room in order to limit the transmission of illnesses around campus. Health Services' duty is to provide direct medical care to students, which is critical to their health and well-being.

Bryant University provides access to a Student Accident and Sickness Insurance Plan. At the beginning of each year you are given the opportunity to enroll or waive this student insurance plan. Before you waive coverage, check your current coverage carefully as frequently students arrive on campus without adequate coverage, especially if covered by a Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) or a managed care plan that has limited or no benefits in the Smithfield, RI area. Make sure you are fully covered while on campus and throughout the policy year for inpatient and outpatient hospitalization, diagnostic testing and xray services, prescription drugs, and mental health services. Also be aware of any deductibles required by your current plan. All full-time students at Bryant University are eligible to enroll in this insurance plan.
