Leave of Absence

Degree-seeking students who wish to take a one-semester leave of absence must apply for such leave by completing the "Leaving the University" form in the SIS Student Center and seeking approval from their academic advisor and the program director. Degree-seeking students who wish to take a leave of absence for a second consecutive semester should follow the same process and the request must be approved by the academic advisor and program director. Students on approved leaves of absence are not required to apply for readmission prior to their return, but they should notify their academic advisor and program director of their intended return at least 30 days before the open registration date for that semester. 

Students enrolled in professional certificate programs should notify their program director or administrator should they wish to take a one-semester leave of absence. No official forms are required to be filed.
