How to Request a Leave of Absence (LOA)

Please refer to the Registrar’s website at for instructions on how to request a Leave of Absence.

If the decision is made to take a Leave of Absence, the student must complete the PCOM Leave of Absence Form, which includes receiving the appropriate administrative signature (i.e., Dean of the respective school and his or her designee) confirming that the LOA has been approved. The LOA is not approved without this signature. The form is available on the link above. The effective date of the LOA will be discussed at the time the form is submitted.

The completed form must be returned to the Registrar’s Office.

Upon receipt of the Leave of Absence form, the Office of the Registrar will notify all administrative offices at PCOM, PCOM Georgia, or PCOM South Georgia as well as the National Student Loan Clearinghouse, of the student’s Leave of Absence status
