Leave of Absence and Withdrawal Policies
Leave of Absence
Students who contemplate leaving Lindsey Wilson College
voluntarily and who anticipate that they will not be able to return
the semester following their withdrawal are encouraged to
file for Leave of Absence (LOA) of up to two semesters. If
unable to return at the end of the first semester on a LOA, a
student on LOA may make application for continuation by writing or
calling the Academic Affairs office. The Leave of Absence
assures re-admission without further paperwork or review by the
Admissions Committee and the ability of the student to continue
under the terms of the academic requirements that applied at the
time the LOA was granted. At any time after return to
full-time status, a student who has been on LOA may opt to study
under the terms of a later catalog. The Leave of Absence
application is available in the Registrar's and Academic Affairs
offices and must be approved by the Academic Affairs office.
Withdrawal from the
A student contemplating withdrawal from the College should first
consult with his or her advisor. If after advisor
consultation the student still wishes to withdraw, he or she must
contact the Academic Affairs office or the Vice President for
Student Services & Enrollment Management to complete an
official Withdrawal form. A student withdrawing from the
College before the end of a semester or module forfeits credit for
work done in that semester or module. Students who need
to withdraw from all of their courses should refer to the
Withdrawal Refund Policy located in this catalog.
- Withdrawal from the College is not permitted during the last 30
days of the semester.
- Students who do not complete the withdrawal process as stated
above may receive grades of F in all courses in which they were
enrolled. These Fs may result in loss of eligibility for
financial assistance, whether at Lindsey Wilson College or another
institution to which the student transfers.
- Proper withdrawal from the College is important!
