Withdrawal & Leave of Absence

If you are registered for a semester and decide not to attend, you must officially withdraw or take a leave of absence. A leave of absence should be taken if you intend to return in a future semester; a withdrawal indicates a decision to leave the University permanently. Charges are canceled in accordance with the published refund schedule, based on the effective date of the withdrawal or leave of absence.

To withdraw or take a leave of absence, you must contact both of the offices below:

Sargent College Academic Services Center
635 Commonwealth Avenue
Room 207

Sargent College Graduate Financial Aid
635 Commonwealth Avenue
Room 217

Note that if you withdraw or take a leave of absence (LOA) after a semester has officially started, you may be accountable for a portion of the tuition, fees and other charges, and you could also lose financial aid.
