A student who wishes to take a leave of absence from the College must submit a leave-of-absence request before separating from the College. Students forfeit the opportunity to petition for a leave-of-absence if one has not been submitted to the Registrar prior to the start date of the next academic term following their departure.
Submitting a leave-of-absence form will enable the student to maintain continuous enrollment status for up to two semesters. A maximum of two leaves-of-absence may be requested during a student’s enrollment. Students who break their continuous enrollment without filing a leave-of-absence form must reapply for admission to the College and will be subject to the degree requirements as stated in the catalog for the term of their re-admission.
Return to Marymount College after a break in status is not guaranteed.
An official transcript of all coursework taken while away from Marymount College must be submitted to the Registrar’s Office prior to return to the curriculum to ensure proper course registration. Returning students who submit coursework taken elsewhere with a grade point average less than 2.0 will be referred to the Office of Admission for review and possible denial of readmission to the College.
A leave-of-absence will be granted for a maximum of one academic year. Special circumstances (beyond the student’s control) may occasionally call for a longer leave, which may be granted through an academic petition to the Vice President of Academic Affairs of the College. Students who have experienced an interruption in enrollment at the college (leave of absence, etc.) must be approved to return to the curriculum by the Vice President of Academic Affairs or designee. A maximum of two leaves of absence may be granted during a student’s enrollment.
