If needed, an official medical excuse will be given to a student to cover the time under the care of the Department of Health & Disability Services. The excuses should be given directly to the instructor. Students are reminded that they are responsible for any class work missed.
Disability Services is the designated office at Alcorn State University which evaluates disability documentation, determines eligibility, and implements reasonable accommodations for enrolled students as guided by Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, the Americans with Disabilites Act, and University policy.
Academic & Residential accommodations are provided on an individual basis. See Disability Services for additional instructions.
Student Health Insurance
Alcorn State University does not offer student health insurance. Medical, physician, hospital, or dental bills are the financial responsibility of the student and/or his/her parent(s). However, Alcorn State University does have a Health Services Unit on the Lorman campus that provides quality health care services by a licensed physician and professional staff free of charge. Appointments are not required. When necessary, referral services are available at the Natchez ASU Family Clinic and local health care providers; expenses incurred for services rendered at off campus medical facilities are the responsibility of the student.
