Leave of Absence

Matriculated students planning to take a semester off may apply for a Leave of Absence. Students who take an approved leave of absence may return to degree status at the end of the leave period without making formal application for readmission.

A leave of absence longer than one semester in length requires the approval of the Chair of the Division housing the student’s major. Students may not remain on leave for more than two consecutive semesters.

A leave of absence must be requested no later than two weeks after the start of the semester in question. Click here to download a Leave of Absence form.
