Withdrawal from the University
Students not returning following the completion of a semester should send a letter addressed to the Vice President for Student Life. The following should be included in the letter: full name, student identification number, statement regarding not returning and reason for not returning. To withdraw officially from the University during a semester, a student should discuss options with their academic advisor before obtaining a Withdrawal Form from the Student Life Office (2nd Floor of the Wallace Student Center). This form, once completed, will be distributed to the following offices: Registrar, Financial Aid, Business, Accounting, Veterans Affairs, International Admissions, and Residence Life, so that a student’s record may be closed out in all these areas. The Student ID is to be turned into the Office of Student Life upon withdrawal or mailed to Post Office Box 95, Buies Creek, NC 27506. Failure to withdraw by the published withdrawal deadline will result in the issuance of a grade of “F” in every course, which will adversely affect a student’s grade point average (GPA) with the exceptions noted below.
Medical withdrawals may be granted at any point within the semester, only for those instances where an incapacitating injury or illness prevents the student from completing the term. Contemporaneous or other appropriate medical documentation from a physician who administered care at the time of the illness or injury that clearly establishes the student’s inability to complete the term as a result of that illness or injury must be submitted along with a written request for medical withdrawal to the Student Life Office. All medical withdrawals must be approved by the Vice President for Student Life. Approved medical withdrawals will result in students receiving grades of “W” in all courses for that semester. Students not returning following the completion of a semester should send a letter stating this addressed to the Vice President for Student Life. The following should be included in the letter: full name, student identification number, statement regarding not returning and reason for not returning. There is no application or processing fee for those that withdraw for medical reasons when reapplying to the university for the next semester.
Deployment withdrawals (to include domestic and international deployment) may be granted at any point within the session. The service member being deployed must present orders along with the request for withdrawal to the Student Life Office. All withdrawals must be approved by the Vice President for Student Life. Approved deployment and medical withdrawals will result in students receiving grades of “W” in all courses for the term or semester.
University Disciplinary System
The Vice President for Student Life is responsible for the administration of the University’s disciplinary system. This responsibility is exercised on behalf of the President of the University and involves various hearing boards and committees.
Campbell University believes in individual freedom, both as a right and as a responsibility. Attendance at Campbell University is a privilege, not a right. The University traditions and principles as stated in the Campbell University Mission Statement and Code of Honor, accepted by each student through his or her act of voluntary registration, evolve from the core of this concept of freedom and responsibility. Therefore, it is presumed that the student who elects to come to Campbell University does so with the intent of being, in fact and in spirit, a cooperative member of this community. Specifically, students are expected to adhere to the Campbell University Student Code of Honor, Student Code of Conduct and all Residence Hall Regulations.
Campbell University students are expected to abide by local, state and federal laws, as well as the generally accepted moral standards of our society. Although the University’s role is not to duplicate civil law enforcement or judicial action, it may exercise authority for reasons indigenous to its functioning as an education institution.
Allegations of misconduct involving graduate students are referred to the appropriate graduate/professional school for resolution.
The Office of Student Life is responsible for 1) conducting initial inquiries into allegations of misconduct; 2) determining appropriate actions, including sanctions; and 3) arranging original hearings, if required, for violations of the Code of Honor and Student Code of Conduct, and Residence Hall Regulations.
Any student that may present himself/herself as a threat to the health, safety, and welfare of Campbell University faculty, staff, and/or students may be temporarily suspended pending a scheduled hearing. This suspension may include, but is not limited to, all University owned property, and University sponsored events, classes, and intercollegiate athletic participation.
The Vice President for Student Life may delegate the authority to conduct initial inquiries to Residence Life Directors for violations of the Campbell University Student Code of Conduct and Residence Halls Regulations. Students may contest the action taken during the initial inquiry by requesting an original hearing.
Students should refer to the Student Handbook for information about all conduct procedures.
