A medical withdrawal may be requested when extraordinary circumstances, such as a serious illness or injury, prevent the student from continuing classes. This policy covers both physical-health and mental-health difficulties.

A compassionate withdrawal may be in extraordinary cases in which a significant personal situation, (for example, the serious illness of a child or spouse or the death of a close family member) prevents a student from continuing in classes.

Medical/compassionate withdrawals may be considered when incompletes or other arrangements with instructors are not available or when restricted withdrawals and other enrollment options are not possible.
