Withdrawal for Medical Reasons
All requests for consideration of Withdrawal for Medical Reasons must be initiated in the Office of the Associate Dean (or designee) of the student’s college or the Neighborhood Student Success Collaborative (NSSC), who will submit the appropriate request form.
Withdrawal after the middle of the semester will be granted by the Medical Withdrawal Committee only in exceptional circumstances. Exceptional circumstances are generally unforeseen occurrences that significantly limit a student’s ability to withdraw prior to midterm. A withdrawal after the middle of the term of instruction is an extraordinary remedy and is intended to be applied narrowly.
This procedure governs requests for an exception to the normal University withdrawal policy based on exceptional circumstances that are medical in nature. See the list below for additional information on Medical Withdrawal:
