If you as the student must withdraw from the university due to medical reasons, please contact our office. Please note that you must provide the necessary and appropriate medical documentation from a licensed psychologist or primary care physician to support your request. If it is prior to the withdrawal deadline as indicated in the academic calendar, you are required to utilize the regular withdrawal process. Medical documentation will still be collected from you. If you as a student is incapacitated or unable to make the request on your own, please contact the Office of the DOS for assistance at 201-200-3552. For details regarding the withdrawal process, visit the Financial Aid website.
