Medical records are confidential. No information is released without the student’s written permission or a court order. To get a copy of your immunization/medical records from Morris, print a copy of the Release of Medical Records form and fax or mail to Health Services.


Appointments are not necessary but recommended if you require more than a short visit.


A Stevens Community Medical Center (SCMC) medical provider is available in Health Service from 9 a.m.–noon on class days and during finals week.


Students may consult with the nurse. Students needing immediate attention by a physician will be referred to SCMC at no additional charge. Students seen at SCMC without a Health Service referral will be charged for services rendered at SCMC rates. SCMC Lab and X-ray charges must be paid for by student insurance.

Urgent Care and Emergencies

In case of severe illness or injury after Health Service and SCMC Urgent Care hours, please go to the SCMC Emergency Room (400 East First Street, Morris, MN 56267). If your medical situation is not severe, consider waiting until the Health Service reopens.

Verification of student illness and medical conditions – Legitimate Absences

A variety of legitimate circumstances cause students to miss coursework. Accommodations for makeup work can often be made. This policy applies to all course requirements, including final examinations.

At Morris, verification of student illness and medical conditions is provided through Health Service.

Contact person:

Students are instructed to notify their professors, before class or as soon as possible, if they will be absent due to illness. Health Service documentation will be given for VERIFIABLE ILLNESSES ONLY. When missing a quiz/test due to illness, contact the professor directly and notify Health Service.

Requests for verification of illness/medical condition should be made same day and each day of illness. Illnesses may be verified in the following ways:

Note: Instructors are not obligated to accommodate students missing so much of the critical components of a course, even for legitimate reasons, that arrangements for makeup work would not be reasonable.
