   Hardship Letter College Withdrawal

To Whom It May Concern:

I am writing this letter to request a {full/partial} withdrawal from {School Name}. On {date}, {description of emotional/financial/medical crisis}. This unexpected and extremely difficult situation prevented me from returning to my classes because I had to {stay at the hospital/fly home for the funeral/seek intensive therapy}.

As much as I would like to return to school and complete my courses, I am unable to at this time because {I am taking care of my family/unable to walk or write/finding a job to pay for the incident}.

I have included written statements from my {doctor/therapist/lender/bank} confirming the severity of my situation and the need for me to withdraw. Also attached is a copy of the {death certificate/medical bill/bankruptcy confirmation} verifying these unfortunate circumstances.

Thank you for your consideration.
