Infectious Disease Policy

If a student has been identified as having contracted an infectious disease (either through self-disclosure or through another community member), s/he will be put on a temporary medical leave by the Dean of Students. S/he must complete a medical records release form which indicates that the student has been treated by a medical professional and has the ability to safety return to the academic rigor of the College.

If the temporary medical leave lasts longer than 10 schools days, the student may be required to withdraw for the entire semester. Withdrawal may affect the student’s financial aid and students are still required to meet all loan repayment obligations as applicable. Students who are no longer registered at Goodwin College should contact the Financial Aid Office at 860-913-2002 to discuss and understand the conditions of their enrollment status and loan repayment obligations.
