Voluntary Medical Withdrawal

A withdrawal can be considered a “medical withdrawal” if a student cannot continue in classes or finish academic requirements during a term for reasons related to the student’s physical and/or mental health. In most cases, a medical withdrawal will be a withdrawal from all courses in which the student is registered, though partial withdrawals may be appropriate in some cases.

Please note:

  • A request for medical withdrawal is not a guarentee.  The information provided will be reviewed and a formal decision will be issued.
  • The medical withdrawal process does not dismiss/waive any legal, disciplinary, housing, meal plan, or other student responsibilities to the university.

Please remember, a student can withdraw from individual classes during the semester through the regular withdrawal options outlined on the Flyer Student Services Registration page (https://udayton.edu/fss/registration/index.php).  

We encourage any student who is considering a voluntary medical withdrawal to speak with someone in their Dean's office to determine all of their options before making a final decision.
