Can I take a leave of absence from my studies?

You can initiate a leave of absence request by submitting a Waivers and Exceptions petition through the Document Processing System. A leave of absence will be granted for one year, and only under conditions that require the suspension of all activities associated with pursuing the degree. For certain types of approved leave, such as medical, the time period for completing the degree will stop with the leave and begin when the student returns to the program. Other types of leave may not stop the time limit for the degree. Consult your program’s graduate academic advisor for details.
