Academic Policies

Medical Leave Status

Medical Leave Status is for students who need to leave the College during the semester without completing their coursework, or take a semester off for serious documented physical or psychological illness. Students on medical leave do not have to withdraw from the college or apply for readmission through the Admissions Office. However, students must be approved for fitness to return to campus through the procedures listed in the policy. Medical leave, which may continue no longer than two consecutive semesters, also establishes guidelines by which exceptions for completion of "Incomplete" grades may be requested. The complete policy is available in the Student Handbook.
