Leave of Absence Request Form: 2020-21 Academic Year
Undergraduate students seeking a leave of absence from Brandeis University must complete the following steps:
- Complete this initial fall 2020 leave of absence request form below.
- Schedule an appointment with an academic advisor.
- Complete an official university leave of absence/withdrawal form (provided by an academic advisor).
After you have returned the official university leave of absence/withdrawal form, your academic advisor will confirm (by email and postal mail) that your leave has been processed. It is important that you speak with an academic advisor about this important decision so that you are informed of all options and resources available to you. Advisors will also share information about the process for returning to Brandeis.
We request that any leave of absence requests be made by August 1, 2020.
