Leave of Absence
Students who contemplate leaving Lindsey Wilson
voluntarily, for whatever reason, and anticipate that they will not
be able to return the semester following their withdrawal, are
encouraged to file for Leave of Absence (LOA) of up to two
semesters. If unable to return at the end of the first semester on
a LOA, a student on LOA may make application for continuation by
writing or calling the college. The Leave of Absence
assures readmission without further paperwork or review by the
Admissions Committee and the ability of the student to continue
under the terms of the academic requirements that applied at the
time the LOA was granted. At any time after return to full-time
status, a student who has been on LOA may opt to study under the
terms of a later Academic Catalog. The Leave of Absence application
is available in the Registrars and Academic Affairs Offices and
must be approved by Academic Affairs.
Withdrawal From College
A student contemplating withdrawal from the College should
first consult with his or her adviser. If after adviser
consultation the student still wishes to withdraw, he or she must
contact the Academic Affairs Office or Vice President for
Student Services to complete an official withdrawal form. A student
withdrawing from the College before the end of the semester
forfeits credit for work done in that semester.
- Students who need to withdraw from all of their courses should
refer to the Withdrawal Refund Policy locate in this catalog.
- Withdrawal from College is not permitted during the last 30
days of the semester.
- Students who do not complete the withdrawal process as stated
above may receive grades of F in all courses in which they were
enrolled. These Fs may result in loss of eligibility for financial
assistance, whether at Lindsey Wilson or another institution to
which the student transfers.
- Proper withdrawal from the College is important!
