A medical withdrawal may be requested when extraordinary circumstances, such as a serious illness or injury, prevent the student from continuing classes. This policy covers both physical-health and mental-health difficulties.
A compassionate withdrawal may be made in extraordinary cases in which a significant personal situation, (for example, the serious illness of a child or spouse or the death of a parent, child or spouse) prevents a student from continuing in classes.
Medical/compassionate withdrawals may be considered when incompletes or other arrangements with instructors are not available, or when restricted withdrawals and other enrollment options are not possible.
All requests require thorough and credible documentation. Usually, consideration is for a complete withdrawal; application for less than a complete withdrawal must be especially documented to justify the selective nature of the request. It is your responsibility to insure appropriate forms and documents are included and complete. However, completing the process does not guarantee or ensure approval; each case is reviewed individually. The medical designee may seek additional information from you, from your instructors or from those providing the documentation. Verification of authenticity of documentation is standard practice.
If you are receiving financial assistance, you are strongly encouraged to consult with a Student Financial Assistance Counselor to identify and understand the financial assistance / monetary implications of processing this withdrawal transaction.
This completed packet should be submitted in person to 651 East University Drive by mail, or by fax, or email.
