Leaves of absence will be granted to students deemed to be in good standing who wish to interrupt their study. No more than four semesters of total leave time will be granted to any student. Each leave request should be made in writing to the student’s Executive Officer prior to the semester or academic year during which the leave will be taken. If approved by the program’s Executive Officer, requests for leave will be forwarded to the Office of the Registrar. The leave must then be cleared by the offices of Financial Aid and International Students (if applicable), the Mina Rees Library, and the Bursar. Leaves of absence are not counted toward the time limit for completion of degree requirements. Any student subject to induction or recall into military service should consult the veterans’ certifying officer before applying for an official leave. Any international student with F-1 or J-1 student status must consult the Office of International Students at the Graduate Center before applying for a leave. In general, international students must remain outside the U.S. for the entire semester while on a leave of absence and may need to reapply for a new student status if their absence is longer than five months. During the period of the leave, no changes in academic status, including such matters as the scheduling and taking of qualifying exams, application for en-route degrees, and advancement to candidacy, may be effected.
Students who request a Leave of Absence and who currently have a fellowship are required to complete the Fellowship Deferment form.
- This form applies to students who will be taking a leave of absence and want to save one or two semesters of their five-year fellowship for when they return. If they do not defer the funding, they will lose those semesters of support.
- This form is in addition to any leave of absence paperwork that needs to be filed with the Registrar’s Office.
- Additional information about fellowship deferment policy can be found here.
