Medical Resignation/Withdrawal Request
What is a Medical Resignation?
A medical resignation is appropriate when, by recommendation of a licensed health care provider, a student cannot continue enrollment in any of his/her courses because of a serious physical and/or psychological illness. A medical resignation results in 0 credit hours for a semester.
What is a Medical Withdrawal?
A medical withdrawal is appropriate when, by recommendation of a licensed health care provider, a student cannot continue enrollment in one or more of his/her courses after the withdrawal date (see academic calendar for last date to withdraw: http://www.auburn.edu/main/auweb_calendar.html) because of a serious physical and/or psychological condition. Because serious health conditions usually impact all courses, most requests for a medical withdrawal result in a medical resignation (see above).
