CatalogAcademic RegulationsLeave of Absence

Leave of Absence

A student in good academic standing who must interrupt his or her graduate program for good reasons may request a leave of absence from graduate study for a definite period not to exceed one year. The request must be made in writing and should be made at least one month prior to the beginning of the semester the student plans to take the leave of absence. Upon the approval of the student’s department chair/program director, and dean of the school or college, the student will not be required to register during the leave of absence. The time that a student spends on an approved leave of absence will be included in the time allowed to complete the degree or graduate certificate (i.e., six years for the master’s degree and graduate certificate; eight years for the doctoral degree.)
