Administrative Emergency Withdrawals

It is always KSU's goal that students guide their own educational process, and when difficulties arise along the way we are here to help. When students experience medical or psychological emergencies that impede their ability to successfully remain enrolled at KSU, an administrative withdrawal can help students focus on healing without harming their academic record.

Students should always consult the catalog and appropriate office websites for full policies and procedures that might otherwise impact them before pursuing an administrative withdrawal. Review the documents below thoroughly. If you have questions or need more information after reviewing all documents, contact the Office of the Dean of Students at or call 470-578-6367.

After the deadline the only options are Incompletes from professors (if eligible) or appeals to the Academic Standing Committee.
