Student with leukemia not allowed to graduate while 2.5 credits short

ARIZONA: Student body President Stephen Dwyer was disallowed to graduate with fellow students for being short of just 2.5 credit hours as he was forced to take his junior year off to receive a bone-marrow transplant, The Arizona Republic reports.

Stephen made up for the lost time by taking extra classes and passed all his exams. He was also elected president of Dobson High School student body for the 2015-2016 school year. Despite all this he ended up about two classes short which he expects to take next semester.

He made a request to be allowed to graduate with his class but the school administration rejected it. The student responded by posting his situation on Social Media which has went viral drawing criticism of the handling of the matter by the institution.

 "I had to be in isolation after I received my transplant because my immune system was non-existent; it was just at the beginning of growing again," he writes.
