Withdrawing from Stetson University

The Medical Withdrawal process is meant for students who are unable to complete the current semester of courses due to professionally documented medical concerns. The documentation is subject to the approval of the Dean of Students or their designee.

The form may be obtained from the Registrar's Website.

If you have questions about medical withdrawal please contact Debbie Tate, dtate@stetson.edu or call 386.822.7473.

After the form is filled out by a student, it is submitted to the Dean of Students office with supporting medical/mental health documentation from an approved provider for review. The Dean of Students or their designee will meet with the student and within seven (7) business days make a decision.

Once approved by the Dean of Students, the student will need to submit the paperwork to the Office of Housing and Residential Life (if the student is a resident) and One Stop for signatures. Once all signatures are obtained, the student must return completed medical withdrawal form to Dean of Students office. (CUB 229)

The student will need to fill out the exit interview (on the website above) and drop all classes. If the student is having trouble dropping classes they must contact the Registrar’s office.
