Students may petition, in writing, the Leave of Absence Subcommittee of the Student Promotions Committee for a leave of absence for one year or less. The Subcommittee convenes as necessary to consider such requests and then submits its recommendation to the Dean for a final decision.  Students requesting a leave should expect to appear before the Subcommittee to discuss the reasons for the request.

Students may obtain maternity or paternity leaves of absence for up to six months by submitting a written request to the Assistant Dean for Student Affairs.

Extension of any leave of absence beyond the period originally granted requires a written petition and a personal appearance before the Leave of Absence Subcommittee to discuss the need for the extension.
