Upon satisfactory completion of one year in the Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation, a leave of absence may be requested in writing. Requests must be made by December 15 for leaves beginning in January. The deadline to request leaves beginning in September 2020 has been extended to July 20.
Due to spatial constraints, students are not guaranteed an authorized personal leave of absence, and priority will be given to medical leaves. An approved leave of absence assures readmission to the School within one year. Leaves of absence are granted by the Associate Dean of Academic and Student Affairs to students in good academic standing.
Any student who is a member of the National Guard or other reserve component of the armed forces of the United States or of a state-organized militia and is called or ordered to active duty will be granted a military leave of absence for the period of active duty and one year thereafter. Upon return from a military leave of absence, the student will be restored to the educational status attained prior to being called or ordered to such duty without loss of academic credits earned, scholarships or grants awarded, or tuition or other fees paid prior to the commencement of active duty. The University will credit any tuition or fees paid for the period of the military leave of absence to the next enrollment period or will refund the tuition and fees paid to the student at the student’s option.
Students in need of a military leave of absence should contact the Associate Dean of Academic and Student Affairs.
