Withdrawal from the College

There are four classifications of withdrawal.

A student may withdraw from the College until 5 p.m. on the last day of classes. Upon withdrawing, a “W” symbol will appear in the grade column on a student’s transcript for all courses still in session on the effective date of withdrawal. Courses that ended before the effective date of the withdrawal will report grades following normal conventions. All courses that have not yet started as of the effective date of the withdrawal will be deleted and no entry will appear on the student’s transcript.

Students who live in a residence hall must check out of the hall within 24 hours after withdrawing.

There are four classifications of withdrawal. They are as follows:

  • Withdrawal - Voluntary: At any time during the year, a student may withdraw from the College for personal reasons. In consultation with the Dean of Students or the Academic Dean, a student planning to return to Landmark should discuss the requirements for readmission.
  • Withdrawal - Involuntary: Students may be forced to withdraw from the College for inadequate academic performance (i.e. dropping down to one class or being administratively removed from all individual classes), or when the College determines that the student is a danger to one’s self or to others or that the student has refused to cooperate with efforts deemed necessary by the College to determine if the student is such a danger.
  • Withdrawal - Medical: A medical withdrawal will be granted in the case of extraordinary circumstances—such as a serious illness or injury—that prevent a student from continuing his or her coursework. This classification covers both physical-health and mental-health difficulties. A student must provide documentation from a qualified professional for a medical withdrawal within 30 days of his or her departure from campus. The College may certify a medical withdrawal without documentation. Clearance from qualified professionals may be required for a student to resume their studies in a later semester.
  • Withdrawal - Administrative: A student who leaves the College without informing the Office of the Dean of Students or the Office of the Academic Dean may be administratively withdrawn from the College after missing 10 consecutive class days.

Students capable of signing the official withdrawal form are expected to do so. If the student is not capable of signing the form, the Dean of Students or Academic Dean may sign on behalf of the student.

Students who are suspended from the College will not be allowed on campus as of the effective date of their suspension without the express, written consent from the Office of the Dean of Students or Office of the Academic Dean. Students who are suspended will be eligible for re-enrollment at a future date and may have specific re-enrollment criteria to be met for re-enrollment to be considered.

Students who are expelled from the College will not be allowed on campus as of the effective date of their expulsion without the express, written consent from the Office of the Dean of Students or Office of the Academic Dean. Students who are expelled from the College will not be readmitted.
