Students may withdraw from the university for various reasons (e.g., financial, personal, family emergency, medical, military), any of which must be clearly stated on the withdrawal form.
The University of Colorado does not have a special medical withdrawal process. Your reason for withdrawing is not indicated or differentiated on your academic record or transcript, no exceptions are made to the Withdrawal Calendar, and withdrawals submitted for medical reasons are subject to university policy and deadlines. If a student submits their withdrawal form after the drop deadline, they will receive a W grade for each in-progress class.
Students may withdraw by filling out the standard withdrawal form, obtaining any required signatures, and writing "medical" in the reason section of the form. Students do not have to submit documentation of their extenuating circumstance to the Office of the Registrar; such documents will not be saved in the student's record for any reason.
Students who wish to withdraw for a medical condition and who have been seen by their own private medical provider may fill out the standard withdrawal form. Under the reason section, write "medical." After withdrawing, if the student meets certain criteria, the student may submit a Tuition Dispute Form to the Bursar's Office.
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, write "medical." After withdrawing, if the student meets certain criteria, the student may submit a Tuition Dispute Form to the Bursar's Office.
These procedures are to be used ONLY by military personnel ordered to active duty or fire fighters and police officers who help with state or natural disasters: Procedures for Students Ordered to Active Duty.
