Withdrawal for Medical Reasons


The University may require a student to seek specialized treatment for medical or psychological reasons. These actions will be coordinated by the professional staff in the Office of Academic Affairs.

 

Students who experience emergency health situations or extenuating life circumstances may apply in writing for a medical withdrawal from the University. Applications must be filed in writing with the Office of the Registrar before the end of the current semester. Medical withdrawal requests must contain justification for the request and explicitly supportive written documentation from competent and/or licensed attending professionals. The University reserves the right to require additional information related to the medical withdrawal request. Students who are granted a medical withdrawal will receive grades of “W” in all classes. Requests for monetary refunds related to the medical withdrawal must be approved by the Vice President of Fiscal Affairs. The University does not guarantee any amount of monetary refund due to a medical withdrawal executed beyond published drop dates and deadlines. Students should consult with the Student Financial Services regarding financial liability before seeking a medical withdrawal.
