Loyola Marymount University Bulletin 2012-2013
Up one level:
A leave of absence may be granted to a student upon written request to the Office of the Registrar. A leave of absence may be granted for no more than two years. The leave of absence date will be the date that the Leave of Absence/Withdrawal form is received in the Office of the Registrar.
For a student enrolled in a current term, application for the leave must be made before the stated deadline for withdrawal from classes. This date may be found in the academic calendar in the University Bulletin or online for the given term. A leave of absence may be granted only if the student withdraws from all courses in the term. If completed by the deadline, a student will receive grades of W for all courses in that given semester. A student may not take a leave of absence from the term if application is made after the stated deadline for withdrawal from classes. Any student who stops attendance after the deadline to withdraw from classes will receive a grade of F for each course in progress.
A student who is accepted to the University but not yet enrolled may defer admission through the Admission Office. A student with prior enrollment may apply for a leave through the Office of the Registrar. A leave of absence is canceled if the student registers in another college or university without prior written permission of the student’s Dean. In this case, the student has de facto withdrawn (see Withdrawal) from LMU and must reapply through the Admission Office. The student may enroll again at LMU if accepted through the Admission Office. Similarly, a student is considered to have withdrawn from LMU if the leave of absence is extended unofficially beyond two years.
