Full-time students are expected to maintain continuous registration throughout their degree program. Students leaving campus at the end of a semester for study abroad, for military service, or other reasons should notify the Rutgers Business School: Undergraduate New Brunswick (RBS-UNB) to submit a leave of absence or withdrawal form.
Leave of Absence. Students in good academic standing who interrupt their registration and plan to return at a specific time may take a leave of absence.
Students who have been academically dismissed may not take a leave of absence during their transition semester, or they will forfeit their transition semester.
Students who leave campus before the end of the 12th week of the semester are eligible to return the following semester without submitting an application for reenrollment, providing they submit a formal withdrawal request to the RBS-UNB.
Failure to attend class is not equivalent to a leave of absence, and students will not receive an adjustment of charges or grades unless a formal leave of absence is filed with and approved prior to the 12th week of the semester.
External courses are not permitted during a leave of absence: a leave of absence is not for the purposes of taking degree credits elsewhere. If there are extenuating, one external course could be considered, but prior pre-approval from the advising office is required. Without prior pre-approval, the external credits will not transfer.
Any RBS student wishing to take a leave of absence must submit their Leave of Absence
request with the Office of the Undergraduate Registrar.
Students cannot use WebReg to drop their last course or cancel their schedule. Students must submit a Leave of Absence
request to cancel their registration and take a leave of absence from the business school.
Students may submit a Withdrawal
for a particular semester when a return date is not known or when there is no plan to return to the Rutgers Business School: Undergraduate New Brunswick.
Students who have been academically dismissed and withdraw during their transition semester will automatically forfeit their transition semester.
Failure to attend class is not equivalent to a withdrawal, and students will not receive an adjustment of charges or grades unless a formal withdrawal is filed with and approved prior to the 12th week of the semester.
