VOLUNTARY WITHDRAWAL FAQS
Program already has a professional master’s degree program and is phasing out undergraduate program. What is the absolute latest a program could submit the letter of Voluntary Withdrawal and still not have to do a self-study/site visit? Could a program submit the letter on June 30 and then not submit a self-study (which is due July 1st)?
Voluntary Withdrawal materials must be approved by the CAATE Office. It is recommended that the program submit documentation for Voluntary Withdrawal by June 1. The program could not accept students for that fall.
Freshmen enroll in the Intro class in the fall and then they are admitted during the spring semester. They begin the professional phase of the program during the following fall. If a Voluntary Withdrawal letter is submitted in June (e. g. 2017), could this new cohort begin the professional phase of the program in the fall (2017)?
Is the date based on when they were actually admitted or when they actually begin the professional phase of the program? Students may not be admitted, enrolled, or matriculated into the program after the Voluntary Withdrawal documentation has been approved by the CAATE.
