Complete leave of absence/withdrawal form
A student must complete the leave of absence/withdrawal form. It will automatically be routed to the appropriate members of PCOM.
Consult with the program's Dean
The student, in consultation with all relevant departments, should consider how a
leave will affect his or her overall progress in the academic program of the College.
The Program Director, Office of Student Affairs, Office of the Provost and the Dean
reach a decision after careful consideration is given to personal and professional
circumstances. All applications for leave of absence or withdrawal are considered
on their individual merits and approved only for extraordinary reasons.
Speak with financial aid
When a student is on a leave of absence they are not considered:
- Enrolled during the term of the leave.
- Qualified for loan deferment.
- Qualified for special monetary loans, grants or other special considerations that
presuppose the status of a regular student.
The Financial Aid Office will perform a Return of Title IV Funds calculation to determine if any student loan funds need to be returned to the lender.
Students are advised to consult with the Financial Aid Office regarding their loan payback and other financial matters throughout their decision
