Leave of Absence (LOA)

College of Dental Medicine-Illinois

Academic. A student may be placed on LOA for academic reasons upon a determination of the Student Academic Progress Committee. A student on LOA for academic reasons is automatically placed on academic probation. Students will be assessed tuition for any additional instruction required as a result of the LOA. An academic LOA will result in a delay in the expected graduation date.

Voluntary. Students who wish to voluntarily initiate a leave of absence for personal or medical reasons should contact the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs. Additional coursework, for which students will be assessed tuition, may be required of students returning from a personal or medical LOA. A voluntary LOA will result in a delay in the expected graduation date.
