Medical withdrawal

A medical withdrawal may be requested when a student experiences a significant medical illness affecting academic performance and/or the ability to function safely in the community. This is a petition process. The purpose of a medical withdrawal is to provide students time for rest and recovery. During this time, students are encouraged to seek treatment of the physical and/or mental health condition. The medical withdrawal and re-entry petitions are managed by McKinley Health Center. Phone (217) 333-2700 with questions or to request an information packet.


In Case of Emergency

After hours service is accessed through the Community Elements Crisis Line: (217) 359-4141.
