Navigating The Unexpected

Unfortunately, there may be times in a student’s academic career when unexpected situations arise that interfere with the student’s ability to be academically successful in a given semester. Such situations include, but are not limited to, physical health issues, mental health issues, family/personal crises, or an experienced loss. In such situations, students may wish to consider petitioning for a medical withdrawal.

What does this enable me to do?

  • Understanding the Process

    Care Area staff help you understand which petition type suits your experience and offer guidance to navigate the petition submission process.

  • Finding the Appropriate Petition Types

    There are two categories of Medical petitions. By Deadline and Retroactive. Within both types, students can opt to submit a petition to Withdraw from all classes in the given semester or Drop one or more (but not all) classes in a given semester.
