What is a Medical Withdrawal for Mental Health/Psychological Reasons?

In general, a medical withdrawal for psychological/mental health reasons is intended to help a student in an acute and often crisis situation who may be in the middle of a semester, and/or is so overwhelmed psychologically that he or she is unable to perform academically in any of their classes. The medical withdrawal is intended to help a student withdraw from all their classes immediately during the semester so that they may seek immediate treatment without having to worry about being penalized grade-wise or tuition-wise. It is primarily intended for someone needing to withdraw from all of their semester classes, not just some, or one (unless there is a compelling reason to warrant a "partial" withdrawal).
