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. This is in the form of an official letter from a health care provider. The letter must be typed on the health care provider’s letterhead stationery.

In light of the Covid 19 situation, Fulton Engineering will temporarily accept healthcare provider information from the student, via fax or email. Receiving medical documentation directly from the student’s healthcare provider remains the preferred method via fax.

Documents must be in a sealed envelope from the provider.
