What is a Hardship Withdrawal?
A student who is unable to complete a course or courses due to hardship may petition for a late course withdrawal after the stated deadlines. Hardship is considered to be an incapacitating injury or illness requiring extensive recuperation or a significant personal emergency such as death in the immediate family. Verification of the hardship is required. Petitions for a late course withdrawal on the basis of hardship are available through the Office of Student Life and must be submitted by the last day of the week prior to finals.
