Student-Requested Leave of Absence Process

A student-requested Leave of Absence (LOA) indicates a student’s desire to temporarily separate from the student’s academic program with the intention to return. A LOA is granted for a maximum of one year from the date the LOA is approved. The LOA may be granted for military, jury duty, maternity/paternity, or circumstances covered under the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993. LOAs are also granted for requests associated with personal or health-related issues.
