Students who do not enroll for consecutive academic quarters (exclusive of summer) must reapply for admission. However, if students meet the criteria below, they may be granted a leave of absence, which means that they do not have to reapply for the following quarter and that they may preregister for classes as continuing students:
- The Application for Leave of Absence must be submitted to the Registrar's Office on or before the last day of the quarter (including summer) prior to the quarter for which the student is seeking leave.
- Leaves will be approved if attending consecutive quarters would present an exceptional hardship or loss of opportunity.
- Students seeking leave for more than one quarter must apply each quarter for the following quarter.
