Yes I do have the policy paper as a hard copy and this is the online link to the pdf:
I received an incomplete I never completed any of the courses, I registered for multiple semesters and didn't finish the class, in my brief weeks of being well I would think that this semester would be different and I would register but just couldn't attend, withdraw or complete any of the courses
I was hospitalized around 5 or 6 times In different hospitals over the 3 years and registered for 5 semesters all I need is for them to grant me the withdrawal on just 2 of the 5 semesters for the hold on my academic account to be lifted. I doesn't seem fair that I should pay for these courses, not be able to take them and then have them affect my GPA on top of everything if you know what I mean.
This was their e-mail response:
I am writing to inform you that we have reviewed your retroactive waiver application. Upon further review, unfortunately we are not able to grant an approval for a retroactive withdrawal for classes enrolled in the Summer 2011, Spring 2012, Summer 2012, Fall 2012, and Spring 2013 semester. The reason we are not able to grant an approval is, although we sympathize with your situation, you do not present any acute extreme, extenuating circumstance that caused you to miss the withdrawal deadline. It is the student’s responsibility to take the necessary action to meet the university deadlines.
I apologize for not having better news. Please understand that we are held to the strict university policies when evaluating waivers. Since you have been dismissed from the University, you may want to consider enrolling into a different school to start anew.
I wish you the best in your continuing studies.

Sorry i need to reply so that it can take me back to the other page (ignore this message)
I'm sorry I didn't see "the above information" which you mentioned
I will definitely thank you so much Joseph for all your help and sincerity. Just to conclude you think I should leave a legal approach as a last resort because it's an uphill battle?
Again, I very much appreciate the time and effort you put into my answer
