Leave of Absence
Graduate students may request a leave of absence from a program through written appeal
to their advisors. The advisor will forward the request along with a recommendation to the
Dean of the Faculty who will answer on behalf of the University. A student who does not
register for courses for more than one calendar year must reapply for admission to the
University and to the graduate degree program.
Withdrawal from Courses
After the date of dropping and/or adding courses, students are allowed until the end of the
14th week as of the beginning of a semester to withdraw from courses. “W” will be
inscribed on their records. No withdrawal is allowed beyond this period.
Withdrawal must be made by the deadline set for dropping a course. Late withdrawal may
be accepted only in case of illness or circumstances beyond control.
