Class Excuses

The Student Health Center healthcare providers do not write class excuses for illness or injury. In rare instances where a student's future activity or class attendance may need to be limited for medical reasons, a medical note may be written at the discretion of the healthcare providers. (Texas State Student Handbook)

Walkout Statement

Students receive a walkout statement at checkout whenever a visit is made to see a healthcare provider. Students can use the walkout statement to provide documentation of a visit to the Student Health Center for a professor or employer. The walkout statement will provide information about the nature of the visit and the date and time of the visit. The walkout statement is the document provided to students for use as a class or work excuse.


Currently enrolled students attending classes at the San Marcos or Round Rock campus pay a Medical Service Fee (MSF) each semester that gives them access to Student Health Center services.  Students who take correspondence courses are also eligible for care at the Student Health Center.

Students enrolled in the previous semester can receive care during the periods between academic semesters. See chart below.

Students not currently enrolled may use the Student Health Center for one long semester after their last semester enrolled at Texas State.

  • For example, students enrolled in the spring semester who graduate or do not take summer classes may use the Student Health Center for the entire summer.
  • At the end of this grace semester, the physician-patient relationship is terminated as well as access to all other services. It is the responsibility of the patient to arrange for transfer of care to another physician by the end of this extra semester.
