Elective Withdrawal


Once an assignment is made to a clinical elective, a student may not withdraw from the elective unless there are extenuating circumstances and the late drop is approved by the deans of the Office of Student Affairs.

The late drop request may be submitted online via the Student Portal after the six week deadline (six weeks before the month that the elective is scheduled in). The senior coordinator will facilitate the approval process for students. Failure to withdraw from an elective will result in the recording of a grade of "Fail" in the elective.


Withdrawal Process


Complete the online form in your Student Portal. Please allow three - five business days for processing.
