Medical Leave

Purpose of Medical leave of absence

The purpose of a medical leave of absence (MLOA) is to provide students with time away from campus for treatment of a physical or mental health condition that impairs a student’s ability to function safely and successfully as a member of our community. The authority to grant a MLOA and permission to return from a MLOA resides with the Assistant Dean for the Student Experience.
