5.6 Voluntary Withdrawal

The Law School understands that the decision by any student to cease studies and to withdraw from their program is a serious matter and not undertaken lightly. Should a student decide to voluntarily withdraw for any reason, the student should first speak with the Dean of Students Office. A student who ultimately decides not to return to the Law School must formally withdraw their registration in writing. To do so, a student may request a Voluntary Withdrawal form from the Dean of Students. Students who withdraw from their programs of study will need to apply for readmission to resume a program of study.

Students on financial aid should review their awards with Financial Aid before deciding to withdraw. If a student has a loan from an outside provider, they should contact their loan servicer for more information before leaving campus.
