Leave of Absence

If you choose to extend your study abroad experience with a leave of absence, you must submit a Request to Change Required Leave of Absence to the Dean of Students Office. See the Academic Regulations and Procedures booklet for more information.

Students who participate in a Carleton summer program (Economics in Cambridge, Irish Literature and Culture in Ireland, and Art Now) are REQUIRED to take a leave of absence the following winter term. Requests to take fall or spring term off instead of winter are considered by the Academic Standing Committee through the process described above and should be submitted well before the program's commitment deadline.

Students who participate in non-Carleton summer programs are NOT required to take a Leave of Absence.
