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
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!
