Students considering a leave of absence (LOA) should review the information provide by the Office of the University Registrar and be aware of possible impacts to aid.
Taking a leave of absence violates the continuous full-time enrollment requirement for merit scholarships. Undergraduate students may request scholarship reinstatement due to the following documented exceptions.
- Military service (LOA),
- medical leave of absence (LOA),
- excused medical withdrawal, or
- leave of absence (LOA) to complete a documented, approved internship or co-op experience.
Students on a leave of absence may initiate repayment on their federal and/or private loans. Students should contact their lender or loan servicers for information on deferring payment while on an LOA.
If you take a leave of absence and do not return after your two semesters have passed, then you may need to reenroll when you wish to return.
