7. Here, I am assuming that the student makes the final decision to leave. This is not always the case. Students can be told to leave if they are not making adequate progress toward the degree. Also, students may not feel that the decision is in their control. In my case, the decision was mine but it did not feel like I had much of a choice. I could stay and be sick, or I could leave and work toward feeling better.
