Dismissed/Kicked Out of College.

I was recently dismissed/kicked out/withdrawn from college within the past week. I wasn’t allowed to continue my externship until I seen a Mental Health Counselor. What I wasn’t told was that I couldn’t miss more than 10 consecutive days. The day before the 10 days were up my program manager called and told me that I either had to withdrawl or they were going to dismiss me. I’ve been going to school since September 2008 and now I’m stuck between a rock and a hard place. What should I do?

First: until you were seen by a mental health counselor?  What was your externship in and why did you need to see a counselor?  Did something happen for which you were disciplined?  Not sure what that has to do with the withdrawal?  Did something else happen for which you were going to be disciplined?

I don't know what you should do in this situation.  What does your school manual say in terms of what the school is entitled to do? Try www.attorneypages.com and look for an attorney near you.
