The Medical Withdrawal policy of The University of Alabama establishes procedures to follow when a student suffers from a physical, emotional or psychological condition that significantly impairs their ability to function successfully or safely as a student. The policy is primarily administered by the university’s Student Health Center (SHC). For all non-medical withdrawal needs, visit this link .

Medical Withdrawal

Medical withdrawals are governed by the UA Medical Withdrawal and Return to Campus Policy.
The purpose of this policy is to provide academic relief to the student, not financial relief.

Please refer to the Student Account Services policy for the financial impact of withdrawals at different stages in the semester.

If you wish to pursue a medical withdrawal, please first carefully review the UA Medical Withdrawal and Return to Campus Policy. Following review of the policy, it is your responsibility to see that the required forms are submitted to the SHC (see links below). Completed forms for the University Policy on medical withdrawal and clearance are required in order to begin the review of the request.

If you have questions about the process for medical withdrawal please contact the Student Health Center, or email medwithdraw@ua.edu or call 205-348-7164.
