Dismissal and Withdrawal

LMU-DCOM reserves the right to dismiss any student at any time prior to graduation. Circumstances warranting such action may be of an academic, legal or professional nature. It is imperative that any student who leaves LMU-DCOM for any reason follows the approved check-out procedure before their dismissal, withdrawal, or Leave of Absence is final. Failure to complete this exit procedure will cause LMU-DCOM to withhold all records pertaining to the student’s attendance. The check-out procedure is as follows:

  1. If the student is withdrawing, he or she must supply the Dean of Students with a letter of resignation. Only students who are passing coursework will be allowed to withdrawal. Students who are failing coursework will not be allowed to withdrawal. The student’s transcript will note the date of the withdrawal.
  2. If the student is being dismissed, the Dean of LMU-DCOM should inform the Dean of Students of the dismissal as soon as possible. The Dean of Students communicates with the student who is being dismissed that a check-out procedure is required.
    • As soon as the Office of Admissions and Student Services is formally notified of the student leaving school, it will produce a memorandum stating the change in the student’s status to all LMU-DCOM offices and faculty. Before leaving campus, the student must undergo an exit interview with Admissions and Student Services Office.
  3. When the student completes all of these obligations, LMU-DCOM will then release student records upon the proper request. Dismissal and check-out forms are available in the LMU-DCOM Office of Admissions and Student Services. The student’s transcript will note the date of the dismissal.
