Voluntary Withdrawal

  1. If you voluntarily withdraw from the school or you are dismissed from the school for just cause, you forfeit your position and standing in the class. Readmission to the school may be granted only after approval by the Dean based on recommendations of the Admissions Committee.
  2. If you must withdraw from the school for any medical reason (including mental, physical, or chemical impairment) certified by a qualified physician, you shall be guaranteed one readmission the following academic year contingent upon your providing the appropriate professional certification of treatment and/or management. Any further delays would be at the discretion of the Admissions Committee. All classes completed up to the time of withdrawal will be included in and count toward your record, GPA, and scholastic standards evaluation.
  3. You are reminded of the University academic appeals procedure. The section “Student Academic Appeals” in the LSU General Catalog outlines the route by which you may appeal any decision or action that affects your academic life in the University.
  4. To voluntarily withdraw from the school for any reason, you must meet with the Associate Dean of Student Affairs and the counselor. You must also write a statement of intent to withdraw which explains your reason for withdrawal and if you plan to request readmission. Readmission may be granted at the discretion of the Admissions Committee. Once you submit your letter of withdrawal, the Associate Dean of Student Affairs and counselor will alert the Registrar, Admissions, and the Financial Aid Office. Please see Refund of Fees section.
