Non-matriculated students departing Davidson College should review these guidelines to ensure a smooth transition. This article provides information and action items you need to complete as soon as you have submitted the required forms to the Dean of Student's Office. If you have questions about this process, please contact T&I and we will work with to ensure a smooth transition as you depart Davidson. We are committed to your continued success and stand ready to support you on this journey.
Any student transferring or withdrawing from the college must contact the Dean of Students' office (704-894-2225) to begin this process.
Once your Banner student record is updated with withdrawn/transfer status, you will no longer have access to Davidson College resources associated with your network account based on the effective date. This includes the following applications:
