Taking Time Away – CSB+SJU

Are you considering taking time away?

What’s the difference?

Academic Leave

An academic leave allows the student the opportunity to return to SJU after a specified period of time away. Students are able to take up to a full academic year of leave. If the student wishes to extend their leave, they must contact the Office of the Dean of Students.

Permanent Withdrawal

A permanent withdrawal means the student will not return to SJU to complete his studies. If the student wishes to return to SJU at a later date, he will need to reapply through the Office of Admissions.

Term Withdrawal

A term withdrawal, much like an academic leave, allows the student the opportunity to return to SJU after a specified time away. A Term Withdrawal is used after 11:59 p.m. prior to the first day of classes and lasts for the remainder of the semester.
