How do I withdraw from the College for Medical Reasons, Military Service or a Life-Changing Event Beyond My Control?

The College recognizes that students may have to officially withdraw from class(es) because of a call to active military duty (appropriately certified), a disabling injury or serious illness (must be certified by a physician), a life-changing event over which they have no control (must be documented by an appropriate third party), or an administrative reason (must have a staff member provide written explanation to support the request). Upon receipt of the withdrawal form and documentation, the request will be reviewed and may take 4-6 weeks for a decision. The request may be made within the term or no later than 30 days following the term.

NOTE: Future financial aid eligibility may be adversely affected by withdrawals. All students requesting withdrawals are encouraged to speak with the Financial Aid and Student Accounts Offices prior to submitting the form and supporting documentation to determine the potential financial implications based on a possible change in enrollment.

Please be prepared to attach the appropriate supporting documentation when submitting the request form. 

Current students should log into delaGATE and complete the Administrative Withdrawal form in Students/Registration and Payment/Withdrawal & Refund Info section. If you have any questions about this process, please email [email protected].
