Before you initiate a request for a leave of absence, you should first talk with your faculty advisor. You will also need to discuss the implications of a leave of absence with your school leaders, applicable partner programs (such as NYCTF or TFA), and the Office of Admissions and Enrollment. There may be financial, professional, and academic consequences to suspending enrollment in the program.
The Office of Admissions and Enrollment will notify you via e-mail that they have approved your leave of absence and inform you of exit and re-entrance procedures. Student Financial Services will follow up with you about how to pay any outstanding Relay tuition and fees.
You should note that a leave of absence will be treated as a withdrawal for the purposes of Title IV federal financial aid. This may require you to return a portion of unearned Title IV funds, namely direct unsubsidized loan funds.
