Graduate Catalog 2016-2017
The Graduate Application for Leave of Absence form can be obtained in the Graduate School Office, Cleveland Hall 204, by phone (716) 878-5601, or by emailing the Graduate School at firstname.lastname@example.org. Matriculated students who wish to leave the college for personal or financial reasons may be granted leaves of absence of two full years (four fall/spring semesters) beyond the semester in which they were last registered. A leave will not be granted to study at another college or university.
If withdrawing, or if the leave should extend beyond two years, the student will need to reapply for admission into his/her desired program. To avoid receiving failing grades, students must also officially withdraw from classes in Banner. To withdraw without penalty after the 10th week, students need to file a petition with the Academic Appeals Committee. The student is encouraged to contact the Financial Aid Office and Student Accounts to determine any financial implications that may occur. For additional information about financial aid, refer to the financial aid section of this catalog
