Leave of Absence

Basic information

Students may be granted an official leave of absence from the college for one academic term. Applications for a leave of absence are considered for exceptional circumstances, and if the student does not plan to attend a different college during the specified term. Exceptional circumstances that generally merit consideration include: medical need(s), compassionate reasons affecting immediate family, reserve military service training, participation in an off-campus program that is not endorsed or approved by Calvin College, or if course(s) needed for graduation will not be offered until a future term. If approved for a leave of absence, the student will maintain account access, and will not need to reapply for admission at the conclusion of the leave. Application for the leave, and additional information is available at the registrar’s office.
