Medical Withdrawal and Mandatory Medical and/or Psychological Evaluation

The College of Southern Maryland is concerned about the safety, health, and well-being of all of its students, faculty, staff and visitors.

The college is especially concerned about behaviors and activities that are disruptive to the college, significantly interfere with the student’s education or the rights of others, or are threatening to the student or others.

In circumstances where a student is unable or unwilling to agree to a voluntary medical withdrawal from the college, the Vice President of Student Equity and Success, or a designee, may impose on the student an involuntary medical withdrawal or mandatory medical and/or psychological evaluation.

An involuntary medical withdrawal may be imposed on the student: a) to ensure the safety and well-being of members of the college community, including individuals/members of the public that the student has contact with while in an official student role, or preservation of college property; B) to ensure the student’s own physical or emotional safety and well-being; or c) to protect the normal operations of the college if the student poses an ongoing threat of disruption or interference.

After a student has been issued an involuntary medical withdrawal, the student will not be permitted on the college campuses (including classes) and will be denied access to any other college activities and privileges for which the student might otherwise be eligible, unless and until the student is subsequently permitted to re-enroll at the college.
