Leave of Absence

J29-100 Health Related Leave of Absence

Administrative Leave

A student may be administratively withdrawn by the university in situations including, but not limited to the following:

  • Engaging in or threatening to engage in behavior which poses a danger of causing physical harm to others.
  • Engaging in behavior which poses a danger of causing harm to him/her, if that behavior has a disruptive influence on the institution and/or members of the university community. This includes behavior demonstrating an inability to satisfy personal needs (e.g., nourishment, shelter, etc.) without adequate care to the degree there is a reasonable possibility that serious physical harm or death might occur within a short period of time.
  • Engaging in or threatening to engage in behavior which would cause significant property damage, would directly and substantially impede the lawful activities of others, or would interfere with the educational process and orderly operation of the university.

These procedures do not preclude a student's removal from the university or any unit, class, or program, for disciplinary reasons in accordance with the provisions of the Student Handbook.
