Leaves of Absence

A student may apply for a Leave of Absence by contacting the Office of Student Affairs, (212) 998-1542 or gallatin.studentaffairs@nyu.edu.

A Leave of Absence may be granted for a personal, medical or military reason, and it is generally granted for no longer than two semesters. When a Leave is permitted, the student is not required to maintain matriculation or apply for readmission so long as the student returns to the school within the specified time. While on Leave, a student may not attend another college or university, and the student is required to meet any NYU financial aid and housing deadlines. If a student is on Official Warning or Academic Probation when a Leave is granted, the student returns to the school with same academic status.
