Short-Term Leave of Absence

Students may be granted a leave of absence for personal and/ or family emergencies. A leave of absence is a short-term period of leave that will not adversely affect a student’s academic progress and that constitutes less than 10 days of absence. Such assessments will be made by the Dean of Students and the Dean of Faculty.

Students who wish to request a leave of absence should:

  1. Consult with their faculty advisor and the Dean of Students.
  2. Submit written notification to the Dean of Faculty.

An approved leave does not require application for readmission. Students should advise the Dean of Students and the Dean of Faculty when they plan to return to the university.
