  • A direct family member of the student was hospitalized due to contracting the COVID-19 virus which significantly limited their capacity to be academically successful in their classes; or
  • A direct family member of the student passed due to complications with the COVID-19 virus

  • The student did not like the chosen modality for their course(s); or
  • The student was not able to keep pace with course load requirements; or
