Withdrawal or Transfer From the Law School While in Good Standing
To withdraw or transfer from the Law School in good standing (either during or between semesters), a student first must file a withdrawal request online on the University Campus Connection web site. In addition, the student must submit a letter or email to the Assistant Dean for Student Affairs to request a withdrawal. If the student seeks to withdraw during a semester, the student must see Lorraine Schulz in the Office of Student Affairs to drop all courses for which he or she is registered.
In the event that a student withdraws from the Law School before the end of his or her first semester, the student will be deemed a new applicant in the event that he or she wishes to return and will be required to comply with all the steps and procedures required of all new applicants to the Law School.
Withdrawal From the Law School While Not in Good Standing
A student may withdraw while not in good standing if the student submits a withdrawal request online to the University Campus Connection web site. However, if the student withdraws from classes while not in good standing, the student will be dismissed for academic deficiencies at the end of the academic year. If the student thereafter desires to return to the Law School, he or she must follow the readmission procedures.
Leaves of Absence and Reentry
A student must complete at least one semester in good standing in order to be eligible for a leave of absence. A leave of absence may last a maximum of two academic semesters. (A summer session is not considered an academic semester for this purpose.) To obtain a leave of absence, a student first must file a leave of absence request on the University Campus Connection web site. The student also must notify the Assistant Dean in writing when he or she intends to return.
If a student has been absent for more than two semesters, the student may re-enter only with the approval of the Admissions Committee and must comply with all the steps and procedures required of all new applicants to the Law School.
