While a student may have every intention of completing the semester, Student Assistance and Support Services (SASS) understands that sometimes obstacles arise which prevent this from happening. There are many resources on and off campus to assist students when these challenges occur; however, there may be a need for a student to step away from the university when they are unable to handle their coursework due to the extenuating circumstance(s). A withdrawal due to extenuating circumstance is a withdrawal granted to those students who have experienced an event outside of their control that has impacted their academic life.
Students can explore various options including a partial withdrawal with extenuating circumstances, which is one or more classes; or a full withdrawal with extenuating circumstances, which is the entire course load for the semester.
Please review all information regarding polices, procedures, implications and deadlines prior to submitting the request form that meets your specific needs. It is important to note the potential impact that a withdrawal may have on a student such as, but not limited to: financial aid, housing, health insurance, meal plan, veteran benefits, visa status, athletic status and/or academic implications. Be sure to meet with the appropriate campus representatives to review your situation. Students are responsible for adhering to deadlines regarding the Withdrawal with Extenuating Circumstances process. It is important to meet posted deadlines to ensure full and timely consideration of your request.
