Medical Withdrawal of a Course(s)
A student must provide documentation supporting an illness, injury or disorder from an appropriate authority. The documentation is to be submitted to the Director of Student Health Services if it is a physical issue or to the Director of Counseling Services if it is of a psychological nature. If appropriate, the respective Director will provide the student with a Medical Withdrawal of Course form to be signed by the student’s academic advisor. Once the student has obtained their advisor’s signature, s/he must submit the form to the Registrar. A grade of “W” will appear on the transcript.
All requests for medical withdrawals of a course must be made by the last day of class in the semester. The college does not allow for a retroactive drop of a single course.
- Student must initiate the process using the Medical Withdrawal of Course form and provide verification of illness or injury:
- from psychiatrist/psychotherapist to the Director of Counseling Services, or
- from a physician to the Director of Health Services, who will act on behalf of the College.
