Students may request a short-term leave of absence due to death of a member of the student's immediate family. The student should follow the Leave of Absence policy. Students who find it difficult to come to campus during this time to arrange a leave in person should contact the Dean immediately to make leave arrangements. The duration of the leave shall usually be up to 5 consecutive working days. The immediate family includes any of the following persons: mother, father, spouse/domestic partner, son/daughter (including stepchildren and foster children), brothers, sisters, grandparents, grandchildren, spouse's parents/grandparents, or such persons who have reared the student.
