Required documentation for a medical withdrawal

When pursuing a Medical Withdrawal (or a compassionate withdrawal due to another individual’s medical situation), it is necessary to include official documentation. An official letter must be sent directly from a health care provider. The letter must be typed on the health care provider’s letterhead stationery.

The official documentation from the healthcare provider should include:

  • the date of onset of illness
  • the dates you were under professional care
  • the general nature of your medical condition and why/how it prevented you from completing your course work/attending class
  • the date of your anticipated return to school
  • the last date you were able to attend class

How to send your documentation

Preferred method: Fax

Fax directly from the provider to 480-965-8095

Alternate method: Mail

Documents must be in a sealed envelope from the provider.
