For Spring, Summer, Fall 2020 and Spring 2021

In certain circumstances it is necessary for a student to withdraw from courses after the last date to withdraw. Typically, these are for complete withdrawals from the university, however there are times when well documented cases warrant only a partial withdrawal. When it is necessary to withdraw from courses after the last date to drop, the committee considers:

  • Extraordinary circumstances, such as a serious illness or injury, preventing the student from continuing classes. The medical withdrawal policy covers both physical health and mental health.
  • Extraordinary personal reasons, not related to the student's personal physical health or mental health, preventing the student from continuing in classes.
