First and foremost, you are not alone in experiencing hospitalization. You may be wondering how your hospitalization might impact your relationships, academics, housing, and remaining time at the University. The Care and Wellness Consultants, your academic dean or advisor, and the hospital treatment team are here to help you navigate these questions. The answers are different for each individual.
Some students may decide to remain enrolled at the University with little interruption to their classes. Others may choose to take a health withdrawal and return home for a semester or two of recovery. The following guidelines can help you to think about this decision. We encourage hospitalized students and their parents to review these guidelines in preparation for discharge and follow-up care.
