Leave of absence (LOA) for up to three consecutive semesters is granted to students (U.S. citizens only) who are with Good Academic Standing (cumulative GPA of 2.0 or better) and who wish to suspend their undergraduate studies. Students must contact the Registrar’s Office to apply for a LOA. Students who enroll at another college or university while on a leave of absence are considered withdrawn from the University and must apply for readmission before being permitted to re-enroll at the University. If official withdrawal paperwork is not received, the student is considered unofficially withdrawn.
Students should be advised that financial aid will be recalculated if the student takes a leave of absence prior to completing 60% of the semester. See the Financial Aid - LOA portion of this catalog for details.
Returning from Leave of Absence (RLOA)
When the student is ready to return from LOA (RLOA), contact the LOA/WD Specialist at the Registrar's Office to initiate the process of return. Students may enroll for classes at the end of their approved leave without applying for readmission. If the three semester limit has expired, the student must apply for readmission.
