Administrative Withdrawal

Administrative withdrawals are done only in specified medical and health emergency situations or in the event of the death of a student’s immediate family member. Students seeking regular withdrawals may go here. 

The administrative withdrawal process aides currently enrolled students wishing to withdraw from ALL classes and end their enrollment for the existing term. Partial withdrawals cannot be done using the administrative withdrawal process. The Dean of Students Office can assist any student experiencing one of the following documented circumstances:

  • Physical health emergencies that prohibit course completion
  • Mental health emergencies that prohibit course completion
  • Family death (immediate family only: parent, child, sibling, spouse/fiance or grandparent)
  • Family caretaker needs that prohibit course completion (immediate family only: parent, child, sibling, spouse/fiance or grandparent)

With the existence of one of the aforementioned emergencies, there are two main requirements:

  • Complete the online request form (below)
  • Provide supporting documentation

Medical, mental or caretaker based withdrawals will require a one-page letter, on letterhead, from a healthcare provider verifying that a student is unable to complete the term due to their existing medical condition or an immediate family member’s medical condition for whom the student is a caretaker. Documentation for a family death can be a death certificate and/or an obituary.
