Leaves of Absence and Withdrawals

Voluntary Leaves of Absence   Students who wish to take a voluntary leave of absence for a semester or year must apply for such leave at the dean's office. Students on leave from the College must apply for readmission at least 30 days prior to final registration for the semester in which they intend to enroll. Students on an approved leave of absence have the notation "on academic leave" entered on their permanent academic record following the semester during which they last registered at the University.

Voluntary Withdrawal   Students may withdraw from the University before the conclusion of a semester if they meet the conditions stated in chapter 5.

Students in the College of Arts and Sciences who withdraw within 10 class days immediately preceding the final examination period, except for providential reasons, are not permitted to re-enter the College for the succeeding semester.

In very unusual medical circumstances documented by professional certification, a College student has one semester in which to petition for a retroactive medical withdrawal. If approved, all grades convert to W's and the student is obliged to be absent for a full semester before resuming full-time study.

For information about educational leaves of absence, enforced withdrawal, and medical withdrawal, please see chapter 5.
