Students in good academic standing
may petition for a leave of absence. Students taking a leave of absence
should meet with the Academic Affairs officer in their school and
complete the official exit form (at Mannes, exit forms are available in
the Dean's Office). Recipients of student loans should note that a leave
of absence constitutes a break in their program of study, resulting in
loss of their loan repayment grace period and/or eligibility for
student deferment. They should consult Student Financial Services
when contemplating taking a leave of absence. International students on
F1 and J1 visas normally fall out of status during the period of a
leave and must return to their home countries during the leave;
international students should consult International Student Services when contemplating a leave of absence.
Academic records for students on leave are maintained in accordance with the relevant drop and withdrawal deadlines, and refunds are calculated in accordance with the university refund schedule.
