Students planning to leave Lincoln College for any reason are required to notify the Dean of Student Affairs and/or the Dean of Academic Affairs. If students withdraw from College between the beginning date of the semester and the end of the tenth week of the semester, they receive a W for each course. Grades for students who withdraw after the tenth week of classes will be treated as outlined under “Withdrawing from a Class.” Students must withdraw from all courses in writing (by completing an official withdrawal form) with an academic advisor.

ABE Students

When a student withdraws from the ABE program and Lincoln College-Normal, written notice should be submitted to the Associate Dean of the Center of Adult Learning or the ABE Advisor by the student.

Midwest College of Cosmetology

A student must give written notice of cancellation to the Director of Midwest College of Cosmetology.  The unexplained absence of a student from school for more than 4% of the program will constitute constructive notice of cancellation to the school.

For purposes of cancellation, the cancellation date will be the last day of attendance. Students who are also enrolled in Traditional Academic Program courses ARE not automatically withdrawn from those courses and are subject to the Course Withdrawal policies and procedures detailed in the Traditional Academic Programs policy section indicated above.
