Medical Withdrawal Information

Withdrawal from the university for medical reasons may (a) be initiated at the request of a student or (b) be mandatory when the medical condition of the student has been determined to constitute a direct threat to the health and safety of the student or to individuals who come in contact with the student. Withdrawal for either reason must be approved by the dean or the dean's designate.

Reduced Course Load

Course load reductions are always the prerogative of the academic dean; where medical or psychological reasons are given, the role of the dean or the dean's designate is advisory only.
