Withdrawal From a Course
Except in unusual circumstances, a student who wishes to withdraw from a course without academic penalty may do so within a prescribed time frame; the symbol "W" will be entered on the transcript when the approved withdrawal occurs before two-thirds of the scheduled sessions of the course or prior to the start of the 6th weekend of the trimester. The course instructor and the Program Director must be informed prior to the student's intended withdrawal.
The Program Director provides the final approval for the withdrawal action. This approval may be withheld when there are serious issues in the course regarding the student's professional behaviors, academic integrity, or clinical performance.
To ensure a quality educational experience, all students are expected to complete their academic work in an ethical manner, in accordance with the College's statement on Academic Integrity, and to maintain the professional standards as outlined by the Generic Abilities, the American Physical Therapy Association Code of Ethics, and the APTA Guide for Professional Conduct.
