Students may be designated “inactive” and administratively withdrawn from the University for a variety of reasons, including:
Effective Withdrawal Date
Effective withdrawal date is the date the withdrawal is considered effective. This date is determined by the last date of the student’s academic activity within an enrolled term, not the date of withdrawal processing. See Last Date of Academic Activity (LDA).
Appealing a Withdrawal
Students who are administratively withdrawn may appeal to be reinstated within 30 days of the Effective Withdrawal Date. A withdrawal appeal will not be considered if more than 30 days has passed since the Effective Withdrawal Date. The Student Records Department is the sole approving authority for granting or denying withdrawal appeals. Students who wish to appeal a withdrawal must meet the following requirements:
Note: Students who are academically approved via the appeal process must still complete any financial clearance requirements prior to being returned to an active status. Students notified of requirements to become financially cleared must meet requirements within 5 business days from date of notification or academic approval will be revoked and withdrawal will remain in effect.
As of January 1st, 2019, the additional policy below applies:
Students, in the first term of their program, are required to complete a set of Critical Actions within 45 days of the term start or will be administratively withdrawn from the University. Students withdrawn under the Critical Actions policy may appeal within 48 hours of receiving notification that withdrawal processing has begun.
