Compassionate Withdrawal

Students experiencing extenuating circumstances beyond their control that impact their ability to complete courses and perform academically may utilize the compassionate withdrawal process. The process is unique to each student and will depend on their academic unit, the semester they are seeking a withdrawal, financial aid, student account, housing status, and other considerations.

Students interested in learning more about the compassionate withdrawal process should complete the Compassionate Withdrawal Inquiry form to help expedite the process. A Dean of Students Office staff member will follow up regarding the next steps. Currently, enrolled students MUST use their UofL email address.
