A leave of absence form can be obtained from the Office of Student Affairs, 606 Maytum Hall. The leave must be approved by the appropriate department chairperson and the Office of Student Affairs.

Ordinarily, a leave is for one semester or one academic year. Students wishing to return after a leave of absence must contact the Registrar’s office at least one month before the beginning of the semester in which they wish to enroll. Students wishing to course select should consult the Registrar’s office for registration dates.

A student who voluntarily terminates enrollment from the university may return to the university through reinstatement or readmission.
