Leave of Absence Information

2023-11-03 00:24
We would like to inform you about how to apply for a leave of absence.

You can only request a leave of absence for one semester at a time, with the option to extend it for another semester.
**I-20 students are not eligible for a leave of absence unless there is a special reason, in which case you must speak with your DSO.

If you take a leave of absence for one semester and then extend your leave for a second semester (there is no fee for a second leave of absence), you will need to complete and submit a new application.

If you want to register for the next semester after a one- or two-semester leave of absence, you don't need to report to your school, you can register in POPULI during the regular registration period.

Beginning in 2024, you will be charged a $50 leave of absence application fee. If you do not enroll after two semesters, you will be automatically withdrawn. If you withdraw and wish to re-enroll, you will need to follow the readmission process with the Office of Admissions. There is no fee for readmission.

To take a leave of absence, you must contact the Office of Admissions and pay your outstanding balance in full.
