Before a student leaves Quinnipiac, to drop out or transfer to another school, he or she must fill out an “Undergraduate Student Withdrawal and Exit Interview Form.” Here is the front of the form…

The form calls for signatures from the Dean of the school the student is in, the Financial Aid office, the Bursar’s Office, and the Office of Residential Life.  It also calls for an exit interview with the Dean of the school. Transferring student Mike Governa said, “It takes about 5 minutes to leave this University – 3 to fill out the form and 2 to talk to the Dean.”

The back of the form is a survey of reasons to understand why students leave…

Governa thinks some of the questions on the back are “stupid.” He said “Why do they ask because they’re not going to change it anyway.”  The retention committee is looking to make changes but they say a big problem is that not everybody fills out the withdrawal form.

Nicole D’Allesandro is a former Quinnipiac student who transferred to UMASS Boston.  She made her decision to transfer over  the summer so she wasn’t at school to pick up a form.  “They mailed it to me but I was already gone so I just didn’t do it,” she said.  She wanted to stay at Quinnipiac and was frustrated when she left.  She felt that no one helped her find a way to stay… so she didn’t feel obligated to do anything else for the school.
