Leave of Absence

A student who has been granted an eligible Leave of Absence (LOA) by an institution is not considered to have withdrawn and will continue to be eligible for financial aid under the following conditions:

  1. The student has made a written request to the appropriate School for the LOA.
  2. The LOA involves no additional charges by the school to the student.
  3. The LOA does not exceed 180 days.

If the student does not return from LOA on or before the appointed date, we will report the withdrawal date to the lenders as the first day of the LOA. Students will be required to complete an exit interview with our department if they do not meet the above conditions or fail to return as scheduled.

Students are responsible to insure that all LOA specifications, including beginning and ending dates, are submitted to ES in writing.
