Academic Absences & Withdrawals

Medical Withdrawal

When a student needs to withdraw from the University due to medical reasons, Campus Health is here to help. We’ve provided links to the areas where you will find all the information needed to process your withdrawals.

Medical documentation from the health care provider should be in the form of a letter specifying the following:

a. Approximate date of the onset of the illness (or if a chronic condition the date the condition was exacerbated)
b. General nature of the medical condition which prevents the student from completing his/her course work
c. The last date the student was able to attend class

Please address all documentation to:
