In the case of withdrawal on or before the official ten percent date (10%) date of the semester, the withdrawn course(s) will not be included on the transcript.
Seventy Five Percent (75%) Date
Exception to Seventy Five Percent (75%) Date
The Dean of Students may make exceptions in cases of extenuating medical circumstances and award a grade of “W” during the final twenty five percent (25%) of the academic term for curriculum students. A student must comply with the following steps if he/she desires a medical withdrawal:
- Submit medical documentation supporting a request for a medical withdrawal within thirty (30) calendar days of the last attended class unless medical documentation is provided that satisfactorily explains a longer time period. It is most feasible that the request and documentation be submitted before the end of the semester (and end of the classes) in question. The documentation must be submitted to the Dean of Students.
- The Dean of Students will review all submitted documentation and make a decision regarding voluntary medical withdrawal within ten (10) business days after the receipt of said documentation.
- The decision of the Dean of Students will be communicated to the student via registered mail, hand-delivered or electronically with confirmation of receipt from the student. The Dean’s/AVP’s decision is final.
- Students who are granted medical withdrawals will receive the grade of “W” in all courses in progress and/or specified in the request.
- Specific conditions for re-admittance are stipulated at the time of withdrawal. These conditions may specify a minimum period of time for the withdrawal and/or may require a letter of medical clearance from a physician, psychologist or psychiatrist stating that in the professional expert’s opinion the student is now capable of handling the College’s academic and social demands.
