Required to Withdraw

Any student who has previously been given an Academic Warning and who again fails to meet the requirements for Academic Continuance will be required to withdraw from Memorial.

The dismissal period for a first required withdrawal is two semesters. The dismissal period for a second required withdrawal is three semesters. The dismissal period for a third required withdrawal is six semesters.

Students can view their Academic Status on their transcript, which they can see through Memorial Self-Service.

The purpose of the required withdrawal and the dismissal period is that students take the time to reflect upon what went wrong and what they can do to improve their grades when they do return.

Readmission appeals

In very exceptional circumstances it is possible to make an appeal for readmission (6.11.3(4)) before serving the full period of dismissal. This is possible only once a student has served at least one-half of the period of dismissal.
