Situations sometimes arise in the course of a semester that make it necessary for a student to take a formal break from studies here. This occurs most commonly when a student is ill and will need to take a medical leave. But there may be other situations (for example, the serious illness of a close family member) that also make a leave advisable or necessary. Whenever a student needs to withdraw in the middle of the semester, her transcript will include the courses in which she had been enrolled but will list a “WD” in place of a final grade. Students withdrawing in the course of the semester will be required to complete a re-enrollment application.
A student who withdraws in the course of a semester may be eligible for partial refund of her tuition.
