Leave of Absence Policy

The availability of a formal leave of absence for Drury University students is limited, and is generally granted only for academic purposes. To apply and be approved for a leave of absence, students must be in good standing and plan to return to Drury University within the designated time. The maximum time allotted for a leave of absence is two semesters. Students who wish to pursue a leave of absence for academic purposes should begin the application process with the Registrar.

Official withdrawal from the university can also have specific academic and financial implications. Drury University recommends that students who wish to pursue a withdrawal or leave of absence should consult with their academic advisor and the Financial Aid Office to better understand his or her individual situation.
