Medical Review and Involuntary Withdrawal

The Dean of Students (in collaboration with at least one of the following; the university health center, professional counselors, outside medical professionals or anyone else deemed necessary) may withdraw or temporarily suspend the student from the University when a student engages in any behavior that:

  • Poses a risk to the well-being of others;
  • Prevents effectively pursuing his or her academic work; or
  • Is detrimental to others in the students living environment, or academic environment.

If involuntary withdrawal of the student is necessary, readmission to Linfield is dependent upon approval by the Dean of Students and the Director of the Student Health, Wellness, & Counseling Center. The process of readmission may include a psychological evaluation, and review of the student’s compliance with a recommended treatment plan.
