Medical Withdrawal (Medical Leave of Absence)

Academic approval is required for a Medical Leave of Absence. For additional information review Requirements for a Medical Leave of Absence.

Students approved for Medical Withdrawal might have a credit posted to their account to be applied toward future semesters. All unused credit will be forfeited after one year of issuance and tuition and fee charges will not be refunded. Students who withdraw from the University for medical reasons will be dropped from all of their courses. Students wishing to return after a Medical Withdrawal must submit medical documentation clearing them for return to the Office of Academic Services and Retention. Adelphi University retains the right to obtain supplemental medical information.

Residence Fees Refund

The Residence Hall Agreement is binding from the date of occupancy to the end of the current academic year. The agreement period begins at 10:00 a.m. on the day before the first day of classes and ends 24 hours after the resident’s last exam or 5:00 p.m. on the last day of final examinations, whichever is earlier.  A resident who wishes to be released from the Residence Hall Agreement must submit the appropriate housing cancellation form and pay an early housing cancellation fee of $750. This cancellation fee will be waived only upon written submission of documented reasons that verifiably prevent the student from living on campus (mid-year graduation, official University withdrawal, study abroad, student teaching, military service or official University leave of absence). Residents who wish to appeal the cancellation fee for other verifiable reasons that prevent the resident from living on campus may submit the cancellation appeal form along with appropriate documentation. Any such consideration of an appeal will be made on a case-by-case basis. In addition to paying the $750 cancellation fee, any refund of housing fees for a given semester will be determined according to the University’s standard refund schedule in effect, minus any housing deposit and residence hall activity fees, which are non-refundable. The full Room Refund Policy can be found here.
