3357:15-13-46 Medical withdrawal policy.

In order to promote student success, if a student or immediate family member (as referenced in policy 3357:15-14-08 of the Administrative Code) experiences a serious illness, injury, or medical condition while the student is enrolled in Stark state, a student may petition to receive a medical withdrawal. When a licensed health care or mental health practitioner deems a withdrawal medically necessary, the student's petition for withdrawal must be submitted for all classes which have not been completed for the current semester, in addition to submitting through the normal refund policy (see policy 3357:15-18-09 of the Administrative Code) or the normal withdrawal procedure (see policy 3357:15-13-16 of the Administrative Code). The medical withdrawal policy covers both physical health and mental health conditions. Students may only submit two petitions while attending Stark state college; however, if the student has exceptional circumstances, as deemed so by the medical petition committee, an exception to the two-petition minimum may be considered.
