The following policy applies to all UNMC students. This policy applies to withdrawal from courses or the institution.
Students may be administratively withdrawn from the term or UNMC for non-academic reasons. These reasons include but are not limited to violation of non-academic policies such as failure to pay tuition and fees; non-enrollment; UNMC disciplinary procedures; death of the student; noncompliance with Student Health policies; or inability to complete a course due to military deployment. Administrative withdrawals must be initiated and approved by the Chief Student Affairs Officer or a College Dean (or designee).
- A Change of Status form indicating administrative withdrawal will be completed by the department initiating the withdrawal. A selection that this is an administrative withdrawal, a withdraw effective date, list of courses that need to be dropped, and the reason for the withdrawal will be noted on the form.
- The change of status will be entered into the student information system by the UNMC Registrar or designee, and a notation of Withdrawn will be placed on the student’s transcript. Grades of WX will be assigned for any courses withdrawn from after the semester Add/Drop period ends and any refund will be calculated based on the Tuition Refund Schedule.
Upon completion of the Administrative Withdrawal, relevant offices are notified.
