Leave of Absence (LOA)
Crouse Hospital College of Nursing students whose ability to meet course requirements is compromised by medical disability or personal emergency may apply to the Administrative Council for a leave of absence. See the Leave of Absence Policy for specific requirements.
Student Withdrawal from a Course (WD)
Students who intend to withdraw from a course or the program are required to meet with their advisor prior to bringing the Add/Drop Form to the Registrar. An official withdrawal from a nursing course must be completed two weeks prior to the end of the clinical component of the course. The date of withdrawal is the date that the Registrar receives the completed drop form with the appropriate signatures.
Tuition refunds are calculated by the exact date of withdrawal (see Refunds in the Financial Information Section). Grades are also assigned based on the exact date of withdrawal. If the withdrawal occurs after the deadline, a grade of (WP) or (WF) is assigned for nursing courses. If an official withdrawal is not completed, an (F) grade is assigned. Withdrawal from nursing courses does not signify withdrawing from liberal arts courses.
Liberal Arts Courses
Withdrawal deadlines and grades for liberal arts courses are assigned according to Onondaga Community College policies. Information may be obtained from the Registrar. Withdrawal from nursing courses does not signify withdrawing from liberal arts courses. Any student who wishes to withdraw from a liberal arts course must do so with the Registrar.
Withdrawal from the Program
Student Withdrawal from the Nursing Program (PWD)
Students may elect to withdraw from the program at any time by writing a letter to the Registrar stating their intent to withdraw. They must meet with the Registrar to complete required paperwork. Students must also meet with the Financial Affairs Officer to make adjustments in financial aid and to arrange payment of all financial obligations to the college. An exit interview with the Director is also required.
Withdraw Passing (WP)
A grade of WP is assigned for students who withdraw from a course after the 7th week of full semester clinical or after the 3rd week of the half semester clinical and who are progressing in meeting objectives before the date of withdrawal.
Withdraw Failing (WF)
A grade of WF is assigned for students who withdraw from a course after the 7th week of full semester clinical or after the 3rd week of the half semester clinical and who have received a deficiency before the date of withdrawal.
Administrative Withdrawal (from a Course or the Program) (AdW)
Administration of the college withdraws a student when the student fails to meet college obligations such as:
- Paying tuition fees.
- Completing health, CPR, health insurance, or clinical agency requirements.
- Attending class, clinical or lab sessions.
- Handing in assignments.
- College obligations are not met
- Student plans are unknown
- Student not registered for the appropriate courses
A grade of (AdW) is assigned. Written notice of the (AdW) grade is sent by mail/email to the address on file in the college office two weeks prior to the effective date of the (AdW) grade. The two-week notice period allows time for students to seek reinstatement or to officially withdraw. Students seeking reinstatement meet with college administration. They will have an opportunity to present the circumstances related to their inactivity or failure to meet college obligations and a plan for corrective action. Students who do not have an official enrollment status are reviewed at the end of each semester.
If reinstatement or withdrawal is not completed within two weeks, the (AdW) grade is permanently assigned. The opportunity to reinstate in a course or the program is available only once.
