Medical withdrawal, leave, & return

Students may experience medical and/or psychological conditions as well as problems around substance misuse that significantly impact their ability to complete their academic pursuits.  During such circumstances, a medical withdrawal and leave of absence from the University provides the student an opportunity to remain a matriculated student while also allowing time away for appropriate treatment and recovery. 
Any student who wishes to request a withdrawal or leave from classes and the University should begin by scheduling an appointment with Academic Advising or Case Management & Victim Support Services.  You can schedule with your academic advisor online at or by phone at (504) 865-5798.  You can schedule with a Case Manager in the Office of Case Management and Victim Support Services (CMVSS) by emailing or calling (504) 314-2160.  You may also be seen as a walk-in.  The CMVSS office is located in Suite G02 of the Lavin-Bernick Center (LBC).
