Voluntary Medical Withdrawal

A withdrawal can be considered a "medical withdrawal" if a student cannot continue in classes or finish academic requirements during a term for reasons related to the student's physical and/or mental health. In most cases, a medical withdrawal will be a withdrawal from all courses in which the student is registered.  This process covers both undergraduate and graduate students at the university. 

We encourage any student who is considering a voluntary medical withdrawal to speak with someone in their Dean's office to determine all of their options before making a final decision.
