Student Withdrawal

POLICY AND PROCEDURE FOR STUDENT WITHDRAWAL FROM THE COLLEGE

Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology recognizes that for various reasons, students sometimes need to withdrawal from the college.  All students regardless of the reason, must complete a school withdrawal form. This applies to all students, whether withdrawing during or between semester. If a student stops attending classes or does not return after a semester of enrollment and fails to complete the Withdrawal from the College form, he or she will be dismissed from the college for excessive absenteeism and charges will be applied. A student who wishes to withdrawal for medical reasons and would like to return in the future must meet with a college counselor to discuss next steps. When a student withdrawals from the college, the withdrawal will be processed on the date of receipt, not when it was signed. A student may not withdraw retroactively. When a student withdraws from the college during a semester, grades of "WS" will be assigned to the student up until the deadline to withdraw from a course without penalty, as indicated on the College Calendar. Grades of Withdrawal Pass "WP" or Withdrawal Fail "WF" will be assigned when a student withdraws during a semester and after the deadline to withdraw from a course without penalty, as indicated on the College Calendar. A student that is called to active military duty and must withdrawal from the college after the deadline to withdraw without penalty will be given grades of "WS". A student that is granted a medical leave and must withdrawal from the college after the deadline to withdraw without penalty will be given grades of "WS".
