Students who wish to withdraw from this semester may e-mail their instructor. The instructor will then notify Nursing staff, who will prepare the paperwork to get the student withdrawn by “W” Day.
Due to COVID-19 and the change to virtual learning, will this readmission application requirement remain in place for the next semester for those Nursing students who drop or withdraw this semester?
