Immunization Policy

Students enrolled in a program without a clinical component are required to follow the immunization policy, as outlined in the Student Handbook, but are not required to have titers.

Leave of Absence

Please refer to the Midwestern University Catalog Academic Policies section for a complete description of the Leave of Absence Policy. Before voluntarily requesting a leave for personal reasons or after being placed on a mandatory leave for academic reasons, a student must make an appointment with the appropriate Program Director or designee and representative from the Dean's Office to discuss the implications of the leave of absence and a revised program of study, if applicable. Typically, a single leave of absence will not exceed 12 months, and consecutive or multiple interrupted leaves of absence will not exceed 18 months. Periods of non-enrollment do not count towards the allotted time for completion of academic programs.

Professional Conduct

Students are expected to emulate the legal, moral, and ethical standards expected of professionals and display behavior that is consistent with these qualities. A Code of Responsibilities and Rights of the Students of Midwestern University is included in Appendix 1 of the MWU Student Handbook. This code clearly states the mode of behavior that is expected of students and covers both on-campus and off-campus activities. Students are expected to read and follow this code.

Unsatisfactory professional behavior, as defined in Appendices 2 and 4 of the MWU Student Handbook, is subject to disciplinary sanctions that may preclude a student's academic progress in their program of study. The Dean of Students investigates formal complaints concerning student misconduct and recommends disciplinary action to the CGS Dean. A student who is found to have engaged in improper conduct is subject to disciplinary action which includes, but is not limited to, disciplinary warning/probation, suspension, or dismissal. Disciplinary warning and probation are not noted on the transcript but are kept in the student's disciplinary file. Suspension and dismissal as a result of disciplinary action are noted on the student's transcript. Disciplinary information may be shared with sites that are affiliated with Midwestern University educational programs.
