The purpose of this policy is to confirm UAMS is in compliance with federal regulations, 34 CFR (d), regarding the process for students requesting a leave of absence.

A leave of absence (LOA) is a temporary interruption in a student’s program of study. A LOA cannot exceed 180 days in any 12 month period and may have a serious impact on a student’s financial aid. Any student considering requesting a LOA that received financial aid, should consult with the Financial Aid Office to determine how their financial aid will be affected.

  • The student must request the leave of absence in writing to their Dean for approval. The letter should state the reason(s) for the request.
  • A LOA cannot be granted for academic reasons (i.e. to keep a student from failing).
  • There must be reasonable expectation that the student will return from LOA.
  • A student returning from a LOA must resume training at the same point in the academic program that he or she began the LOA.
  • Upon return from LOA, the institution may not assess the student any additional institutional charges. Therefore, the student is not eligible for any additional federal student aid (Title IV funds).
  • If a student is a Title IV recipient, the institution must explain the requirements https://worldpaydayloans.com/payday-loans-wy/douglas/ and regulations of his/her financial aid status (grace period, repayment, etc.) prior to granting the LOA. The information that will be provided will include the financial consequences if the student fails to return from LOA. (más…)
