Due to the recent increase in student deaths we have reevaluated our internal procedures. We do not currently have a specific withdrawal code to designate a deceased student. Such a code will be helpful in immediately identifying why a student was withdrawn. A specific code can also be set to automatically generate a refund to the student’s family.
We currently have withdrawal codes for medical withdrawals, withdrawals for military service, administrative withdraws and withdraws by petition. These codes have been beneficial to effective processing and notification. A deceased student withdrawal code will hold the same advantages.
