Administrative Withdrawals may be initiated by a student or an appropriate college official for, but not limited to, the following circumstances: physical or financial hardship, call to active military duty, Academic/Non-Academic Complaint determination, campus safety and security, and compliance with state or federal laws.
Requests for an administrative withdrawal due to a physical or financial hardship must be supported by documentation that demonstrates the severity or duration of the program prevented the student from continuing classes and/or made it unreasonable to expect the student to be able to make up the missed work. Physical or financial hardship includes:
- Serious injury or illness
- Chronic illness
- Mental health condition
- Medical issue of an immediate family member in which the student has to become a part-time or full-time caretaker of that family member
- Death of an immediate family member

Requests for an Administrative Withdrawal must be submitted within 60 calendar days after the end of the semester in which the withdrawal is requested and an extenuating situation occurred. Students must initiate an Administrative Withdrawal request through the Counseling & Career Development Center by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or calling (708) 974-5722 for an appointment time. A Counselor will provide more detail, collect documents, and assist the student with the process. Students who need assistance re-enrolling after an Administrative Withdrawal may contact the Counseling & Career Development Center for support.
