Applying for Medical & Stasis Withdrawals

How do I request a medical or a stasis withdrawal?

Contact the ASD office and request a Course Withdrawal Request form OR access the form online. Print the form.

Complete the form and be sure to indicate:

  • the type of withdrawal you are requesting
  • what courses you wish to withdraw from
  • why you need to withdraw.

Attach medical or professional documentation.

Return it to the ASD office by mail or fax (ASD contact information).

ASD will contact you to discuss the request.

You are advised to report your withdrawals to student funding and/or sponsoring agencies. ASD will provide a letter advising your funding or sponsoring agency of your withdrawal from studies due to disabling condition. If your funding or sponsoring agency requires a letter please notify ASD.

Please Note: When a return to studies at AU appears unlikely, ASD can assist if you wish to discuss alternative education or training opportunities that might better suit your interests, abilities, or accommodation requirements.
