Services and Administration


When a student finds it necessary to discontinue college work at any time other than at the end of any semester, he must email the Office of Records and Registration indicating his desire and reason to withdraw from the institution. A Course Withdrawal Form should accompany the email. The student must clear all accounts, e.g., financial, housing, bookstore, etc.

Grading will be done on the following basis:

  • The transcript of a student withdrawing from Morehouse before the conclusion of the Registration-Add/Drop period will list no courses for that semester.
  • The transcript of a student withdrawing before the final date for withdrawing will contain “W” grades for each course.
  • When a student leaves the College at any time during a semester without submitting a Course Withdrawal Form and without clearing all College accounts, the student will receive a grade of “F” in all courses. Further, he will forfeit all rights to a statement of honorable dismissal, thereby jeopardizing the student’s re-entrance into the College or transfer to another accredited institution.

A student may withdraw on a voluntary basis, for medical reasons that are documented and supported by the Morehouse’s physician/Wellness Center, or he may be directed by an administrator to withdraw for either academic or non-academic reasons.

Voluntary Withdrawal
In cases of voluntary withdrawal, it is the student’s responsibility to file a notice of withdrawal in the Office of Records and Registration by submitting a Course Withdrawal Form. Failure to do so will result in “F” grades for the term and no appeal will be honored after the term has ended.

Medical Withdrawal
Upon the recommendation of Morehouse’s physician or a student’s personal physician, a medical withdrawal may be granted and initiated by Morehouse’s physician. Morehouse’s physician must email the Office of Records and Registration upon immediate receipt of the student’s recommendation to withdraw. The recommendation of Morehouse’s physician is required before the student can be considered for re-admission.

Directed to Withdraw
We reserve the right to direct a withdrawal of any student who violates its rules and regulations or the rights of others, or whose conduct or presence constitutes in any way a risk to the health, safety or general well-being of the community. An administrator must notify the Office of Records and Registration with all pertinent information regarding the withdrawal.
