Students may opt to take an Academic Leave for a maximum of two semesters if they have issues related to health, finances, their families, or if they are studying abroad in universities that are not in the list of AUCA partner universities. To officially declare an academic leave, a student must pay all outstanding tuition fees and submit an application to the Vice President/Chief Operating Officer, signed by the Program Coordinator, the Registrar, Financial Aid office, Shared Service Center and Finance office. Please note that your request will have financial implications. Please contact financial office (room T15) for details of the university’s refund policy. Also, the student should complete a check-out list issued by Shared Service Center.
After 10th week of the semester Academic leave is only granted in exceptional circumstances. Students who do not return from academic leave on time will be dismissed from the University but are permitted to apply for re-admission.
