Leaves, Withdrawals, and Readmission

Leave of absence

Whether it is due to personal, medical, family or professional reasons, students may ask for a temporary leave of absence from the University.  With approval from the appropriate University offices and programs, a student can go on leave for a minimum of one quarter to a maximum of one year. All leaves of absence must be approved by the appropriate University offices and programs. The procedure for requesting a leave of absence — and the specific approvals required — depend on the type of leave. Review the Leave of Absence policy for more information.


Students who wish to withdraw from TGS must notify a student services representative in writing. For more information review the TGS Withdrawal Policy.


Students who miss one or more quarters of registration (excluding summer) will be discontinued from their program. Students who fall into this category and who wish to return to the University must submit an online application six weeks before the desired date of reentry. For more information about readmission, please review the Readmission policy.
