Leave of Absence

Students may request a leave of absence of up to two consecutive semesters (summer and winter are not included) for any of the following reasons:

  • Childbearing
  • Adoption
  • Illness
  • Dependent care (children, partners, parents)

This leave stops the time to degree clock. A leave of absence should be requested and approved prior to the start of the academic term for which it is being requested. Students who need to request leave should complete the Request of Leave of Absence Form and submit it with a statement explaining the circumstances to their campus advisor.
