Withdrawal Download to print
Policies governing withdrawal from the college are predicated on the following definitions: A student who requests withdrawal prior to the seventh week of the semester withdraws from the program with the notation “W” and no grades recorded on his/her transcript. In order to return to the college, students must reapply, following the application procedures established by the college. Student who request withdrawal after seven weeks of course instruction will receive the notation “WP” on their transcript for each course/rotation if passing, or the notation “WF” if failing. In order to return to the college, students must reapply, following the application procedures administered by the college.
The correct procedure to follow for a student wishing to withdraw with either classification is as follows:
NOTE: The official date of withdrawal is the date on which the student begins the withdrawal process. Approval will only be granted by the director of student academic services if all other signatures and approvals have been affixed to the Withdrawal Request form.
A student who leaves the college without proper notice or without following the withdrawal policy will automatically be withdrawn from the college by the Office of Academic Affairs after two attempts to contact the student without an adequate response or failure to respond.
Upon return to campus duties from either a medical withdrawal or personal leave of absence, the college administrators may request a third-party assessment to meet compliance that the student is in full readiness for “return to campus,” ensuring the student is able to fully meet educational and/or clinical obligations. This intent serves to protect the student, the college and the greater community. All efforts will be made to maintain confidentiality and discretion for all involved parties.
