The medical withdrawal is intended as a university support for students missing significant time from class due to illness, hospitalization, or inpatient treatment. Please ensure that you file your medical withdrawal request through the appropriate center. There are two options. (1) Student Health Services processes applications that are primarily for medical/physical health reasons, and the (2) Counseling Center processes applications that are primarily for psychological/mental health reasons.
(1) If an application is more medical/physical health in nature, (e.g., the student was hospitalized for 10 days for an automobile accident injury), it should be filed through Student Health Services (Building 39A, Room 2100, telephone (904) 620-2175). If this applies to you, please download the medical withdrawal request form below and submit it to Student Health Services.

(2) If an application for a medical withdrawal is primarily psychological/mental health in nature rather than medical/physical health in nature, the application should be filed through Dr. Michael Malec, the Associate Director of UNF’s Counseling Center (Building 2, Room 2300, telephone (904) 620-2602).
Please see the following for access to the appropriate forms to be filed with the Counseling Center.

Students wanting an appeal, have 10 class days from the
date of the medical withdrawal denial letter. All appeal requests should be
emailed to the Division of Student and International Affairs office (email@example.com). Please do not contact the
office requesting an appeal unless you will have new, relevant, written
documentation to submit.
After requesting an appeal, a student has another 60 calendar days to
submit the new written information to the
Division of Student and International Affairs office. You can contact UNF’s Division of Student and International
Affairs office with questions at (904) 620-2600 or in person (UNF Student
