Arranging a Leave of Absence

Full-time undergraduate degree candidates arrange leaves through the USC (all other students should contact their academic dean’s office or records office for assistance; see the Registrar’s Office website for more information).  If you’re unsure of the correct office, contact the USC.  

Undergraduate students should request a leave in person at the USC during the month of December or in very early January for the upcoming spring semester, or between May 1 and August 1 for the upcoming fall semester.  Review the information provided in the pages below, then stop by the office.  Contact the USC if you need to request your leave and are not in Boston.
