INVOLUNTARY MEDICAL WITHDRAWAL POLICY
A student may be administratively withdrawn from the University and/or from University housing when, in the judgment of the Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students and a professional member of the University’s Health Services or Counseling Services staff, it is determined that the student’s physical, mental, emotional or psychological health:
- poses a significant danger or threat of physical harm to the student or to the person or property of others; or
- causes the student to interfere with the rights of other members of the University community or with the exercise of any proper activities or functions of the University or its personnel.
Except in emergency situations, a student shall, upon request, be accorded a meeting with a University official or a hearing prior to a final decision concerning his or her continued enrollment at the University. If the student requests a hearing on such a matter, the Georgia College Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students shall appoint a hearing body, consisting of students and faculty.
