Administrative withdrawal is for non-academic reasons only, (i.e., non-attendance, accident, illness, behavior issues; and failure to pass a drug screen or successfully meet the requirements of a background check; or failure to meet other requirements of prospective clinical sites).

Administrative withdrawal may be initiated by instructors with approval from the Vice President for Academic Affairs. The instructor must acknowledge and sign the withdrawal form and submit to the Division Assistant Vice President’s office. Withdrawal is effective immediately. The Division Assistant Vice President’s office will submit the withdrawal form to the Admission and Records Office. Students who are forced by emergency circumstances to leave the University without officially withdrawing should notify their class instructors or the respective assistant vice president in writing and request an administrative withdrawal.
