A withdrawal failure (WF) may only be granted to a student with the approval of the Director of Experiential Education if the student is receiving a failing grade at the time of withdrawal and if the withdrawal is due to extenuating health or personal issues. A student who is requested by the preceptor or site administration to permanently leave the IPPE/APPE site for unprofessional behavior or patient safety issues may be issued a grade of “F”.

When a student either fails or receives a "WF" in an APPE, the student must petition the Student Promotion and Graduation Committee within 3 calendar days after the last day of the APPE to retake the same type of APPE. If granted, the timing of the retake will be subject to availability of sites as determined by the Office of Experiential Education.
