Frequently Asked Questions About Medical Withdrawal

This page is effective on the policy effective date (September 1, 2021).

The question addresses what institutions should do if the policy requirement that the  “the last date of class attendance” be used as the official withdrawal date for both Registrar and Financial Aid Office decisions related to a medical withdrawal possibly conflicts with federal financial aid rules, such as Return to Title IV (R2T4).
