A term withdrawal is when a student finds it necessary to discontinue college work at any time other than at the end of any semester. A Course Withdrawal Form can also be submitted if the student can not withdraw via Banner Web due to holds. The student must clear all accounts, e.g., financial, housing, bookstore, etc.
Grading will be done on the following basis:
- The transcript of a student withdrawing from Morehouse before the conclusion of the Registration-Add/Drop period will list no courses for that semester.
- The transcript of a student withdrawing before the final date for withdrawing will contain "W" grades for each course.
- When a student leaves the College at any time during a semester without submitting a Course Withdrawal Form and without clearing all College accounts, the student will receive a grade of "W" for an unofficial withdrawal at the end of the term.
A student may withdraw on a voluntary basis, for medical reasons that are documented and supported by the Morehouse’s physician/Wellness Center, or he may be directed by an administrator to withdraw for either academic or non-academic reasons.
In cases of voluntary withdrawal, it is the student’s responsibility to file a notice of withdrawal in the Office of Records and Registration by submitting a Course Withdrawal Form. Failure to do so will result in "F" grades for the term and no appeal will be honored after the term has ended.
Upon the recommendation of Morehouse's physician or a student’s personal physician, a medical withdrawal may be granted and initiated by Morehouse's physician. Morehouse's physician must email the Office of Records and Registration upon immediate receipt of the student's recommendation to withdraw. The recommendation of Morehouse's physician is required before the student can be considered for re-admission.
Directed to Withdraw
We reserve the right to direct a withdrawal of any student who violates its rules and regulations or the rights of others, or whose conduct or presence constitutes in any way a risk to the health, safety or general well-being of the community. An administrator must notify the Office of Records and Registration with all pertinent information regarding the withdrawal.
