A student who needs to withdraw from the University or take a leave of Absence should contact the Office of Student Affairs to schedule a departure interview. Both a Withdrawal (WDL) and a Leave of Absence (LOA) are is considered official once the LOA or WDL paperwork reflecting the student's intention has been completed by a designated Student Affairs representative. Completed documents will state the intentions of the student to discontinue the course(s) in which s/he is registered and the effective date the WDL or LOA will be implemented, which is then recorded by the Registrar’s Office. If a student fails to complete the departure interview, the applicable date will be the midpoint of the term, unless the University can substantiate a later date. When a later date is established, that date will be reflected on the departure document. During a student’s leave of absence, their official records remain active, as does their email address. Students returning from a leave of absence within one year are not required to be formally readmitted. Students will be expected to fulfill the graduation requirements in effect at the date of their original matriculation. Students who do not return from a leave of absence within one year are withdrawn from the University. To return, they must be formally readmitted. Withdrawal from the University is the permanent separation of the student from the University. Should a withdrawn student want to return to the University, they will have to apply for admission.
Other Academic Standing information for the University, including the Withdrawal Policy, can be found in the catalog.
Information in regards to returning from a Leave of Absence can be found on the Registrar's Office page.
