Student Withdrawl

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. A student who wishes to withdraw from the college must complete a Withdrawal from the College form, available from the Registrar's Office. This applies to all students, whether withdrawing during or between semester and regardless of the reason for the withdrawal. 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 apply for a medical leave withdrawal must meet with a college counselor for approval. 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".
