Leave of Absence Policy and Continuing Enrollment

A leave of absence may be obtained for the following reasons: medical, military service, or jury duty. In most cases, a student must have a minimum 2.0 cumulative grade point average and at least a 2.0 average in his/her major. The purpose of a Leave of Absence is to permit the student to return without applying for readmission.

A leave of absence form can be obtained from the Office of Academic Advising Services on the 4th floor Reed Library. Or at this link https://www.fredonia.edu/academics/academic-advising/leave-absence

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.

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