Leaves of Absence, Withdrawals, and Reinstatement

Leaves of absence allow students to interrupt their studies temporarily for compelling reasons, with the expectation of resuming their studies once the term of the leave is completed. Students on an official leave of absence are exempt from the continuous registration requirement.

Withdrawals entail formally giving notice that one is leaving the university at the end of a given semester without intending to return.

Reinstatement is the process of returning to the university after an unapproved interruption of studies.
