Alverno College is committed to the academic success, personal growth and well-being of its students. Circumstances may arise when a student experiences a sudden/unexpected health condition that is debilitating to the point that it interferes with the activities of daily living and participation in academic courses/requirements. In the event that a student must drop all/some courses due to a significant medical/health issue they may choose to submit documentation to request a Medical Exception.
A Medical Exception can only be requested during the semester in which a student was enrolled and the health issue occurred. Approval of a Medical Exception may qualify the student for a financial adjustment for that specific semester. A student may only be approved for a Medical Exception one time during their entire Alverno tenure.
To learn more about the Medical Exception policy and request process, contact the Academic Advising Office.
