Student Leave of Absence Policy (effective September 24, 2012)
Leaves of Absence
Graduate Division policies and guidelines concerning a leave are detailed in the Standards and Procedures for Graduate Study at UCLA on page 25. Please read carefully as the eligibility, criteria, duration and deadlines have been revised and are being strictly enforced.
A student applying for a leave must complete a UCLA leave of absence form and a Department of Information Studies leave of absence petition. The UCLA Graduate Division form is available at http://www.gdnet.ucla.edu/gasaa/library/loa.htm#Policy. The Department of Information Studies form can be found at http://is.gseis.ucla.edu/academics/forms/index.htm . Students should obtain signatures from their advisor (dissertation committee chair) and the head of the Doctoral Program Committee if the student is a doctoral student. Please make sure that the Student Affairs Officer (207 GSE&IS Bldg) has reviewed the forms for accuracy and the correct signatures.
