Leave of Absence

In some cases, students currently enrolled at SIPA decide to take a leave of absence for a limited period of time. A leave of absence can be requested for one or two semesters. Leaves of absence are not approved beyond two academic semesters and students who do not return within the approved time frame will be required to re-apply to the their degree program. Students who fail to matriculate in a given semester without prior approval from the Office of Student Affairs will be required to re-apply to their degree program. Students must complete their degree within five years of matriculating at SIPA. Students must obtain the dean's approval before taking a leave of absence, typically for one semester.
