Medical Separation from the University

A Leave of Absence (LOA) is for students who are taking time off from their formal education, with the intent to return to SJU.

Please note:

  • Students may not take classes at another institution and transfer those credits back to SJU while they are on a LOA.
  • When approved, a LOA is granted for one semester and may be renewed once for a consecutive semester or a total of 2 LOAs during a student’s time at SJU.
  • To show continuity in the academic record, a comment of “Leave of Absence” will be placed on the official transcript for the term the student is on a LOA.
  • Students on a LOA are reported to lenders and loan service agencies as “not enrolled” and the student needs to contact lenders for information on possible repayment requirements.
