When a psychological issue interferes with a student's ability to maintain full-time enrollment in college, they may request an underload. Details are provided about how to embark on the underload process.
Significant mental health problems can affect your ability to attend classes and impair your academic performance. If a psychological disorder significantly impairs your academic performance, you may request accommodation. Possible academic interventions for mental health problems include:
- Psychological/Medical withdrawal from the current semester
- Application for a psychological/medical underload
- Requests for final exam excuses (CAPS provides exam excuses for final exams only. CAPS does not issue exam excuses for exams during the semester.)
Additionally, Counseling and Psychological Services offers Road to Resilience, a program to support students on academic probation who are looking for support.
