About Morehouse

Withdrawal from Morehouse College

When a student finds it necessary to discontinue college work at any time other than at the end of a semester or summer term, he must execute a withdrawal form provided by the Wellness Center. The student must clear all College accounts. Grading will be done on the following basis:

  • The transcript of a student withdrawing from Morehouse before the conclusion of the Registration-Add/Drop period will list no courses for that semester.
  • The transcript of a student withdrawing before the final date for withdrawing will contain W notations for each course.
  • When a student leaves the College at any time during a semester or a summer session without filing a withdrawal form and without clearing all College accounts, the student will receive a grade of F in all courses. Further, he will forfeit all rights to a statement of honorable dismissal, thereby jeopardizing the student’s re-entrance into the College or transfer to another accredited institution.
  • Withdrawal from a course after the last day of withdrawal will result in the student receiving a grade of F in the course.

A student may withdraw from the College on a voluntary basis, for medical reasons that are documented and supported by the College’s physician or the Wellness Center, or he may be directed to withdraw for either academic or non-academic reasons.

Voluntary Withdrawal
In cases of voluntary withdrawal, it is the student’s responsibility to file a notice of withdrawal in the Office of Student Affairs. Failure to do so will be noted and taken into consideration should the student
apply for re-admission.

Medical Withdrawal
Upon the recommendation by the College’s physician or a student’s personal physician, a medical withdrawal may be granted by the College. The recommendation of the College’s physician is required before the student can be considered for re-admission.

Directed to Withdraw
The College reserves the right to direct to withdraw any student who violates its rules and regulations or the rights of others, or whose conduct or presence constitutes in any way a risk to the health, safety or general well-being of the College community.
