Requests for withdrawal from courses beyond the deadline date may be granted due to serious circumstances beyond the student’s control that prevent successful completion of the course. Withdrawal exceptions must be submitted within one year of the last day of the term for which the student is submitting an appeal.  Requests made after that time will not be considered. Approved requests will result in a “W” on the student transcript and count towards the student’s college and financial aid completion ratio.  The student’s reasons for pursuing the appeal must be fully explained and documented, in writing, and are limited to the following: involuntary call to military duty, death of a student, documented illness/injury of a student or a member of the student’s immediate family (spouse/partner, parent or child), or severe exigent circumstances.
