Reasons for Withdrawing

Students are able to withdraw from the University for various reasons (e.g., financial, personal, family emergency, medical). Reasons for withdrawing must be clearly stated on the withdrawal form. Below is additional information for students regarding medical withdrawals or for students ordered to Active Duty or volunteering for National Emergency Relief.

Medical Reasons

Any student may withdraw from the University for extenuating or medical reasons. The student may fill out the standard withdrawal form, obtain any required signatures, and write "medical" in the "reason" section of the form. Students do not have to submit medical documentation to the Registrar's Office in order to withdraw. Students should follow the regular withdrawal procedures; however, other offices may require documentation if the student wishes to submit a petition. Please see those offices for more information regarding what documentation may need to be provided. Withdrawals submitted for medical reasons are subject to University policy and deadlines. All withdrawals are processed according to the Withdrawal Calendar.

Students with Private Medical Providers

Students who wish to withdraw for a medical condition and have been seen by their own private medical provider may fill out the standard withdrawal form. Under the "reason" section, the student may put "medical." After withdrawing, if the student meets certain criteria, the student may then submit a Tuition Dispute petition to the Bursar's Office.

Students May Be Seen at Wardenburg

If a student is experiencing medical difficulties, they may be seen at the Wardenburg Health Center at their own discretion. If the student wishes to withdraw, they may fill out a standard withdrawal form. Under the "reason" section, the student may put "medical."

The Wardenburg physician may reccomend and/or mandate a student's withdrawal by notifying the Withdrawal Coordinator in the registrar's office on behalf of the student. A health stop may be placed on the student's record, which prevents registration until the doctor approves the student's return. After withdrawing, if the student meets certain criteria, the student may then submit a Tuition Dispute petition to the Bursar's Office.
