Students who wish to withdraw from
college during a semester must obtain a withdrawal form from the Registrar's
office and complete the withdrawal process by obtaining the necessary
signatures. The completed form must be returned to the Student Life Office
within two business days of notifying either the Registrar's office or the
Student Life Office of the student's intent to withdraw from college. Students
will be granted honorable dismissal and receive withdrawal status (W's) in
their registered courses provided the withdrawal form is submitted to the
office of the registrar within the time limit for dropping courses.
Determination of tuition, room and board refunds is based upon the date the
student initiates the withdrawal process.
A student who is unable to complete a semester's course work due to serious physical and/or mental distress after the official drop deadline may qualify for special consideration. Such students should obtain the late withdrawal form from the Registrar’s office. Students with mental health concerns must be recommended by the director of counseling services to the Vice President for Student Life or the Vice President of Academic Affairs, who have the authority to make voluntary or involuntary medical leave decisions and to authorize other college officials (e.g., Financial Aid) to make decisions based on contextual circumstances. If withdrawal is granted, students receive a "W" for all courses.
Students who leave college without completing the official withdrawal process will not be granted honorable dismissal. A grade of "F" is given in each course in which they were registered.
