Request for Leave of Absence

When requesting an approval for a leave of absence, ask for information at the Academic Affairs Division counter first. (Click here for counter information) You may receive the form of Request for Leave of Absence after we confirm that your tuition before the leave was paid and if any document should be attached.

If you must take a leave of absence for two months or more due to illness, financial problems or to study abroad, you should be approved by the faculty beforehand. Please take the required procedure at least two months prior to the leave at the counter of Academic Affairs Division. If you fail to do so, please note that you are subject to the tuition payment for the relevant semester.
Refer to the following pages in the College of Arts and Sciences Undergraduate Student Handbook (Senior Division), where the reasons and periods for the Leave of Absence are stipulated.
