Leave of Absence and Withdrawal Policies

Leave of Absence
Students who contemplate leaving Lindsey Wilson voluntarily 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 re-admission 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 Registrar's 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 advisor. If after advisor 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 located 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!
