A matriculated undergraduate who needs to discontinue studies for medical reasons (e.g., surgery, pregnancy, illness, rehabilitation and other health-related circumstances) can request a medical leave of absence. Verification for the medical leave of absence must be presented to the Dean of Students when the application for leave is made.
If a medical leave is granted, the student may later resume his or her studies without applying for readmission. If a student cannot return to the University at the end of the medical leave, the Dean of Students should be consulted.
A medical leave does not negate the student's financial responsibility to the University. Financial aid recipients should contact the Financial Aid Office at the earliest possible opportunity. Participants in the University's health insurance plan will be covered only during the year when the student was enrolled (September 1 through August 31); coverage will not extend beyond this period.
Although every effort has been made to assure the accuracy of the information in the Catalog,
students and others who use the Catalog should note that the policies, rules, regulations,
requirements for graduation, course offerings, and other materials reproduced in the Catalog change
from time-to-time and that these changes may alter the information contained in this Catalog.
