Forms and Policies

Counseling and Health

Counseling or Health Services appointments

Please visit the Counseling and Health Services Portal for any forms to complete prior to your visit. 

No-show policy

Missed appointments limit the accessibility of our staff to other students. If you are unable to attend a scheduled appointment, it is important that you call us to cancel or reschedule. If you fail to attend an appointment without notifying us at least two hours in advance, you will be charged a "no-show" fee (assessed to your student account). The fee for a missed appointment with a medical provider or counselor is $15. Learn about Hamline's health clinic fees.

Excuse note policy

Counseling and Health Services does not provide excuse notes for routine illnesses, injuries, or mental health concerns that may lead to missed classes, labs, exams, projects, assignment deadlines, or athletic competitions/practices. Learn about Hamline's excuse note policy.

Emotional support animal policy

The Counseling and Health Services office does not provide Emotional Support Animal (ESA) documentation. Students seeking to have an ESA in campus housing should contact the Hamline University Disability Resources office to determine whether they may qualify for this disability accommodation, and to discuss sources for necessary documentation.

ADHD policies

Counseling and Health Services is not able to provide diagnostic testing for ADHD or ongoing prescription stimulant medication management for ADHD. Students concerned about an ADHD diagnosis or access to treatment are welcome to schedule an appointment with one of our clinicians to discuss referral options and/or common policies regarding controlled substances/ADHD.
