2017-2018 Student Handbook

Page 11 of 107 Updated 1.25.17 Once the Care Team receives the request, they will contact the student's health care provider or other appropriate official for clarification, if necessary. International students with an F1/J1 visa, must consult with their international advisor to discuss the serious immigration consequences that may result from withdrawal from HSU. A student may withdraw themselves before the 8 th day of classes without any penalty by starting at the Registrar’s Office. After the 8 th day of class, if the request is approved, the student will receive W’s on the academic transcript. Thus, a medical withdrawal will not affect the student’s grade point average. The medical withdrawal process is primarily focused on the student’s academic record as it relates to the student’s health and wellness. In some cases, a tuition credit may also be granted through the withdrawal process, however, this will depend on each individual student’s circumstances. Charges that will be considered include: • University housing charges pro-rated from the date of checkout for residential students. • Meal plans generally cannot be refunded as funds are already paid to our service provider. • Tuition will be considered for those with personal or family contributions. If approved, all tuition actually paid by the student (total tuition less any grants, scholarships, refunds, and loan adjustments) for courses not completed during the term in which the approved withdrawal occurs can be considered for a credit for a future return within the next 12 months for when a student re-enrolls at HSU.
