    The approval of a Leave of Absence does not excuse a student from past or current financial obligations to the university. However, students will not be charged tuition for semesters that fall within the approved leave time. A LOA may affect the student’s ability to receive financial aid or loans and/or to defer payments on loans. If leave is approved, students should contact the Financial Aid Office if they have questions regarding their financial aid or loan status.
