Medical Withdrawal Policy

Medical withdrawals are an exception to the university withdrawal policy and should not be used if the student is in the withdrawal period and has not used his or her university withdrawal. 

To request a medical withdrawal, a student must write a letter to Susan Trageser, Associate Dean of Students, explaining the medical situation and how it has affected the student's ability to perform academically. Additionally, medical documentation must be submitted by a health care provider stating the student's diagnosis and time of treatment. 

Please send medical documentation and letter to:

Radford University
Division of Student Affairs
Box 6898
Radford, VA 24142
Fax:  540-831-6758
