Unpaid Leave of Absence

With prior approval from Human Resources, Tuition Remission benefits may be continued during an approved unpaid leave of absence that is taken for one of the following reasons:

  1. Research purposes
  2. Instruction
  3. Government or other service deemed by the University to be in the public interest
  4. Other activities that may be approved by the University

If you take an approved leave of absence without pay for any reason other than those listed above, Tuition Remission benefits will terminate for the duration of your leave on the earlier of:

  1. The beginning of a semester following or coincident with the first day of your leave; or
  2. At the end of any semester in which you begin your leave.

While you are on approved leave of absence without pay, you can accrue service (up to 24 months) toward meeting the program’s service requirement.
