If you do not intend to take courses in any given semester, or are deferring admission to the program, please complete the Leave of Absence Form, and set up an appointment with Dr. Phillips for approval. A leave of absence will only be granted under extenuating circumstances and for only one semester. Anyone wishing to take time off for more than one semester will have to reapply. Any student who takes time off without prior approval will likely be placed on probation when they return.
