Medical Withdrawal

Medical Withdrawal

Prior to mid-term, medical withdrawals are the same as any other official withdrawal from the College. Students will receive a “W” in all classes. However, students are encouraged to complete the medical withdrawal process if appropriate, even if the withdrawal is before mid-term. After mid-term, students seeking a medical withdrawal must submit the appropriate medical documentation on medical doctor’s letterhead, signed and dated by the treating physician who is not a family member, to the Student Development Center. A student must also submit a signed and dated statement requesting a medical withdrawal. If it is determined that a student must withdraw from classes for a given term for medical reasons, the Student Development Center will notify the student’s instructors, the Registrar’s Office, Office of Financial Aid and the Housing Office. Students will be given the grade of “W” in classes if they had passing grades in the class at the time of withdrawal. If students were not passing at the time of withdrawal, the grade of “WF” will be assigned. In all cases, students should make every effort to keep instructors informed of any situation which affects class attendance. A medical withdrawal is for the student’s illness or medical issue only. A medical withdrawal is from all classes for that term. The deadline for submitting complete appropriate medical documentation is one hour before the College closes on the last day of classes for the term. After the last day of class, students must follow the Grade Appeal process included in this Catalog.

Medical Withdrawals for Prior Semesters

Medical withdrawals for prior semesters will be granted only if students can provide adequate documentation that the medical condition for which the students withdrew was such that the students or family members could not contact the College before the semester ended.
