If a leave of absence exceeds 180 days within a 12-month period, the leave of absence may convert into and be deemed a withdrawal from the program. A student who is withdrawn under these circumstances must apply for readmission.
Factors relevant to readmission may include the student’s academic status, the nature and duration of the leave of absence, demonstrated academic progress or personal growth during the leave of absence, and commitment to completing the remaining program of study. Readmission is not guaranteed.
The decision to readmit shall be made by the Associate Dean of Medical and Interprofessional Education or Associate Dean of Clinical Affairs. To facilitate readmission, the Associate Deans may refer the student to the SPC or request that the SPC provide a recommendation on the student’s readmission application.
