Withdrawal or Transfer From the College of Law While in Good Standing

To withdraw or transfer from the College of Law in good standing (either during or between semesters), a student first must file a request online on the University Campus Connection website and send an email to the Assistant Dean for Student Affairs.  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 College of Law 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 College of Law.

Withdrawal From the College of Law While Not in Good Standing

A student may withdraw while not in good standing if the student submits a request online to the University Campus Connection website and a written request to the Assistant Dean for Student Affairs. 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 College of Law, he or she must follow the readmission procedures described in chapter X.

Leaves of Absence and Re-entry

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 request on the University Campus Connection website and then notify the Assistant Dean for Student Affairs by email. The student also must notify the Assistant Dean 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 College of Law.
