Requests for a leave of absence may not exceed 180 days. Students are limited to one leave of absence
per 12-month period of enrollment under Federal Title IV regulations. Additional subsequent leaves may be
granted for jury duty, military reasons, or circumstances covered under FMLA of 1993.
A student whose leave of absence request has not been granted will be considered withdrawn. Students
who do not return
from leave of absence as scheduled will be considered withdrawn. Students who are
withdrawn due to not returning from an approved leave of absence and have received Federal student loan
monies need to be aware that the time taken during the leave of absence will be counted toward their
“grace period”. A program Interruption/Withdrawal Fee is charged to any student who is withdrawn.
