Withdrawal

A student in a first professional program may withdraw from the College by informing the Registrar in writing.  This should be done at least two (2) weeks before Final Exams begin or three (3) weeks before the end of a final year clinical assignment.  A student who does not withdraw by these deadlines will receive a ‘Zero/Fail’ for any missed examinations, papers, etcetera and this ‘Zero/Fail’ will be used in the grade calculation. A student must make an appointment with the Associate Dean of Students and have exit interviews with the Financial Aid and Business Offices.

A student in a graduate program may withdraw from the College by informing the Director of Graduate Studies in writing.  The Director will notify the Registrar in writing and provide the student’s withdrawal letter.  A student must have exit interviews with the Financial Aid and Business Offices.

When the withdrawal from the College becomes official, the following actions will occur:

  • Deactivation of the student’s identification card to remove access to campus buildings except as a visitor during regular business hours.
  • Discontinuation of the student’s email account.  The student must provide the IT Department with another email address within five (5) days where email can be forwarded for thirty (30) days.  If a student fails to give the College IT Department another email account within five (5) days forwarding will not be instituted.
