Medical Clearance Policy

When you medically withdraw from Auburn University, a medical clearance hold will be placed on your account if your health care provider does not recommend that you are ready to return to an academic environment for future semesters in their initial medical letter to our office. If you have a medical clearance hold, you will be unable to register for classes until you complete the following:

1: Schedule a re-entry meeting with Auburn Cares by emailing or calling the Auburn Cares office (334)-844-1305. 

2: Ask your licensed healthcare provider to submit the Medical Clearance Form to Auburn Cares indicating your readiness to return to an academic environment. This documentation can be mailed, faxed, or scanned via email to Auburn Cares:

Mailing Address: Auburn Cares, ATTN: Medical Withdrawal Coordinator, Auburn Cares, 255 Heisman Drive, Suite 1206, Auburn, AL 36849

Fax: (334)-844-1132


These steps must be completed 14 days prior to the first day of classes of the semester that you plan to return. If you have any questions about this process, email the Medical Withdrawal Coordinator at or call the Auburn Cares office (334)-844-1305.
