During the course of graduate study, students may find themselves in circumstances that require them to interrupt their graduate work. When these occasions arise, the University allows students to request a leave of absence for either personal or medical reasons.
To confirm eligibility for a leave, please be sure to review this policy in the current University catalog at the following link: http://catalog.lehigh.edu/graduatestudyandresearch/graduateleaveofabsence/
Students are required to submit an official Leave of Absence Request form.
An approved leave of absence extends the time-to-degree deadline for the length of the approved leave, but only up to the university-mandated maximum of two years.
When ready to resume graduate study, students are required to complete the Graduate Readmission Form, available at the following link: http://lehigh.edu/go/gradreadmit
Students who take a leave from graduate study without requesting an official leave of absence will be required to petition the Standing of Graduate Students (SOGS) committee for readmission if they've been away from the University for more than one year. Unapproved leaves count toward the two-year leave maximum.
