Medical Leaves of Absence

The University is committed to supporting the health and well-being of their students. The University provides a wide range of counseling services to address the mental and physical health needs of their students, including counseling, psychiatric services, consultation, and referral assistance. The goal of the universities is to enable each and every student to function fully as a member of the academic community.

Students are permitted to take voluntary leaves of absence for physical or mental health reasons.

If a student so requests, the Student Health Service or Counseling Center will assist a student in determining whether to take a voluntary medical leave of absence and in arranging that leave. A student on a voluntary medical leave of absence may maintain contact with, and may visit, campus friends and teaching, residence, counseling and administrative staff.
