Involuntary Leave of Absence or Withdrawal

The Vice President of Student Life/Dean of Students, or their designee, has the authority to administratively impose an involuntary leave of absence or involuntary withdrawal when a student engages in behavior that seriously violates CC policies or standards, or when a student poses a potential threat to their own welfare or that of others.

A student that is involuntarily withdrawn or placed on leave of absence may request permission to return to CC.  The student must provide materials to the Vice President for Student Life/Dean of Students, or their designee, to support such a request.  Exactly what materials are needed depends on the individual case.  Contact the Student Life Office for more information.

Students who are on involuntary leave of absence or involuntary withdrawal may not take classes at other institutions for credit.  In rare cases, the Vice President for Student Life/Dean of Students, or their designee, may make an exception.

Note:  Student requests for voluntary leaves of absence or withdrawals will not be approved while allegations of misconduct remain pending.
