General Information for Students
Leave of Absence (LOA) Request
Students may need to take a semester or two off from attending Otis due to medical needs, personal, financial or other reasons. To make it easier to return to the College, students should request a leave of absence before the semester of the intended leave by submitting the Leave of Absence (LOA) Request form. Students who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents may take a leave of absence for up to two academic semesters. F-1 international students are not eligible for an LOA, but can apply for readmission when they would like to return.
If you have questions about leaves of absence, please contact the One Stop at email@example.com.
