Exiting the College


Exiting the College

Students who wish to exit the College may request a leave of absence or fully withdraw from the College.  A leave of absence allows a student to temporarily exit the College for a maximum length of two semesters.  Students who do not return to the College after two semesters will be administratively withdrawn.

If the request is granted and processed:

  • During the add/drop period, the Registrar will drop all in progress courses from the student’s record.

  • After the add/drop period, the Registrar will issue a grade of W for all in progress courses.

  • At the close of the semester, the Registrar will drop all courses for the next semester.

A student who has withdrawn from the College and wishes to return must reapply for admission.

Students are responsible for all relevant tuition and fees in accordance with College refund policy.

Undergraduate Students

An undergraduate student who wishes to exit the College can request a leave of absence or withdrawal through the Academic Advising Center.  Students will meet with the Academic Advising Center, review his, her, or their last date of class attendance, and complete an exit interview.

An undergraduate student on a leave of absence must request a permit to register from the Academic Advising Center in order to return to the College.  A student who wishes to extend his, her, or their leave of absence beyond two semesters, may submit a written request to the Academic Advising Center.

Graduate Students

A graduate student who wishes to exit the College can request a leave of absence or withdrawal through their Department Chair.  Students will meet with their Department Chair, review their last date of class attendance, and complete an exit interview.

If a leave of absence is granted, the candidacy period of the student will be extended for the equivalent time period to the leave.  Specific conditions for academic preparation to return to the program may be required. A student who wishes to extend his, her, or their leave of absence beyond two semesters, may submit a written request to his, her, or their Department Chair.
