Our usual policies about leaves of absence remain in effect. Students are free to take a leave of absence at any point in the semester through the first day of reading period. In order to do so, they need only contact their resident dean. Students on financial aid should also consult with their financial aid officer, but generally taking a leave will not affect their financial aid award. Leaves are open-ended, and students need not specify when they intend to return. However, students should understand that we cannot guarantee that they'll be able to live in their original house of residence when they return.
We encourage students to consult with their Resident Deans about leaves questions.
