Can I take a term off from school and return?
Students use the Leave of Absence form to formally request a leave of absence for less than one academic year (four consecutive terms). Students seeking to leave the institution for more than four consecutive terms should use the Withdrawal form.
Students must indicate the appropriate reason for their request. These students seeking a leave of absence must list both the term and year that they anticipate returning to the institution.
Students must then meet with their academic advisor to inform the advisor of their decision to leave the institution and obtain their signature. International students are required to inform a representative of the International Students and Scholars Services of their decision to leave the institution and secure a signature.
Students must finally meet with a student resource center representative to discuss the financial aid and billing implications of leaving the university. The Leave of Absence form with appropriate signatures must then be submitted to the Student Resource Center for processing.
