What is withdrawal from the College? Students who
withdraw from the College are no longer enrolled at Hendrix and are expected to
leave the campus upon submission of a withdrawal form. No courses can be
continued that are in progress when the withdrawal occurs. Under certain
circumstances, the College may require a student to withdraw. Such action
is warranted if, in the judgement of the Provost and the Dean of Students, a student
poses a threat to the safety of others or has
behavior that seriously interferes with the student's ability to function
and/or interferes with the educational pursuits of others.
