Leave of Absence, Withdrawal, and Readmission

Leave of Absence.A student may be granted a leave of absence for a period not to exceed one year, if, in the opinionof the dean of students, such a leave seems advisable. Medical leaves are granted upon the recommendation of a physician at a Rutgers health facility. All students who request a leave of absence for either personal or medical reasons must complete a Leave of Absence form and then meet with the dean of students. After a student has been away for more than one semester the department reserves the right to request another talent assessment. A student who is returning to Mason Gross after a medical leave may be required to schedule a "return evaluation" appointment at the Rutgers Health Services before being readmitted.

Withdrawal.Students may withdraw from the school with grades of Wthrough the 12th week of the semester. Students wishing to withdraw must speak with the dean of students, the department chair, and their adviser. They then must submit a withdrawal form to the dean of students.

Readmission.Students who interrupt their registration for whatever reason must reapply. Application for readmission can be found at The student must consult this website for all relevant deadlines. Students are required to reaudition or resubmit a portfolio along with the application.

For the school's policy on readmission after dismissal for academic reasons, see Scholastic Standing later in this chapter.
