Competent Holistic Caring

The Clarke Health Center supports the Elmira College Mission by assisting students in achieving their academic and life goals by providing holistic health promotion with the provisions of competent and effective healthcare services in a caring and nonjudgmental environment for the diverse campus population.


Class attendance policies are determined by individual faculty members. The Health Center is not able to give you an "Excuse" from class.  The staff will provide the student with documentation to verify that you were seen in the Health Center for treatment.  This documentation can be shared with the professor, and they will determine whether it is eligible for an excused absence.
