How to apply for an Extenuating Circumstance Withdrawal:
- Submit a 1-2 page personal statement stating your grounds for an EW. You should provide sufficient details to explain your situation, how it has impacted your studies, timelines (onset, consultations, impact on decisions, delays in taking actions), action taken (support, treatment etc.) and plans to help manage your condition/situation (if applicable). Your explanation should be clear, factual and describe the outcome you are seeking. All information provided is confidential and will only be reviewed by the Registrar and the Associate Dean in your home Faculty.
Withdraw from the term you are applying for by withdrawing from all course(s) before the withdrawal deadline. If you are applying for extenuating circumstance withdrawal for only one course you will need to withdraw from the course.
Provide supporting documentation that support the information outlined in your personal statement.
