The professional nurses and counselors that provide DelVal's health and wellness services have dedicated their careers to serving campus communities. That makes a difference when it comes to helping students successfully manage new responsibilities and the stresses that go with them.
For most students, the move to college marks the beginning of full, conscious participation in their own health, nutrition and fitness -- ready or not. In fact, few of us are truly prepared, which is why, much more than simply responding when things go wrong, we do our best to nurture our students' ability to manage stress, balance work and play, make positive choices and, when necessary, understand and navigate the health care system.
We take seriously our role in promoting the physical and mental well-being that underpins academic and extra-curricular achievement.
For those seeking Hiatus and Withdrawal Information:
From time to time, students may need to take time away (hiatus) from the University for medical, mental-health or personal reasons, or to completely discontinue (withdrawal) enrollment as a degree-seeking student.
By policy matriculated students must receive approval to leave the University. This procedure is designed to engage students in decision-making and solution-seeking prior to officially choosing to depart. The complete policy can be found in the University Catalogue in the Hiatus and Withdrawal from the University section, linked here: Hiatus and Withdrawal from the University.
For a student considering departure, the procedure is to complete a brief form. Upon receipt, a staff member will reach out directly to further discuss the request. The appropriate forms are below:
