Dear Name of Registrar,

This letter is to inform you that I need to withdraw from the university due to personal hardship. 

On DATE, my father who was paying for my college education died of heart failure. I have enclosed the medical documents and death certificate. 

His death has left my sister and me without means of financial support, so I need to find employment as soon as possible. My sister is still in high school and will graduate in two years.

My father’s life insurance policy was enough to cover the mortgage of our home, but I need to work to pay for food, clothing and other things. My sister and I are the only family members, as my mother died 10 years ago. 

I have enclosed the withdrawal forms required by the university. Since the semester started only two weeks ago, I am within the time limit, according to school policy, to receive a full refund for this semester’s fees. 

If you have any questions or need more information I can be reached at 555-123-4567 or at

Thank you for your consideration in this matter.
