Leave of Absence

Graduate Students in degree-seeking programs are entitled to a total of two terms (fall and/or spring semesters) of academic leave in the course of a single degree program. However, students must document their request for a leave and meet the eligibility requirements.  Students who anticipate not being enrolled for one or more terms, (fall or spring semesters, not summer), for whatever reason must meet with their program adviser before the first day of classes of their period of non-enrollment to apply for and receive approval for an  Academic Leave of Absence.  Students who are enrolled in summer only programs must apply for a Leave of Absence before taking a summer term off.
