Leave of Absence

Students who do not plan to enroll in classes for at least one semester and intend to return to the University within two academic years may qualify for a Leave of Absence (LOA). A formal leave of absence allows students to maintain their student status and degree requirements upon return. Students should contact CBS Student Services to discuss their options and learn about the process for requesting leave of absence.

When a student wishes to return from an approved leave of absence, they should submit an Application for Readmission to CBS Student Services. After two years if the student has not returned, they will be placed on inactive status.

Additional information about Leave of Absence can be found online through One Stop. Please see the Returning to CBS page on the CBS Student Services website for details about the readmission process. For more information about these policies, contact CBS Student Services.
