Medical Withdrawal

Goodwin College, upon request and with appropriate documentation, may medically withdraw students from their courses due to serious medical conditions that prohibit the student from completing their courses.  Students are required to complete a course withdrawal form with their advisor to withdraw from their courses.  They must also fill out and submit a petition form through the Goodwin College website at  The request for withdrawal and relevant documentation must be received by the module or semester withdrawal date as indicated in the College catalog. In addition, Medical Withdrawals may affect a student’s academic progress. Please refer to the Satisfactory Academic Progress section in this catalog.  Medical Withdrawals will be reviewed by the Record Review Committee (RRC) and students will be notified via their Goodwin College email.  Students who do not agree with the decision of the RRC may appeal to the Goodwin Appeal Board; please refer to the section on Appeals and Grievances.
