Complete Your Power of Attorney Form

Nebraska is one of two states where 19 is the age of majority, instead of 18. This medical power of attorney form, to be signed and notarized by a parent or guardian, allows students who are 18 and younger to give consent for their own health care.

Those who choose to complete this form should do the following: 

  1. Email the completed form to (A copy of the form will be kept on file in Student Health Education and Compliance and a copy will be sent to the CHI Student Care Clinic.) 
  2. Students should carry a copy of this form or keep a digital image of this form on their phone, should they seek healthcare in Nebraska, outside of the CHI health system.

Submit Your ID Photo

To pick up your student ID card at Summer Preview, please submit your photo to the Card Services office. You can also have your photo taken during Summer Preview.
