Returning to School

All students on a Leave of Absence should contact the Office of the University Registrar by email,  six weeks prior to the end of the leave expiration date. E.g.  November 30 for a Spring term return

Students must clarify their future intention and confirm that all documentation are in order, including medical and/or financial clearance, if required.

  • Students wishing to return early may only do so with written permission from the Dean of Students.
  • Students on a Medical Leave of Absence will be required to submit a health clearance to the Director of Health Services prior to registration check-in.
  • In some cases, the Director of Health services may require an Independent Medical Evaluation (IME) prior to return for the subsequent semester.

Note: For students in the MD Program, please see the Leave of Absence Policy in the School of Medicine Section.
