A leave of absence (LOA) enables students to maintain the same curriculum of record if they intend to be away (no active registration) from the University for a full semester. Interested students should submit an LOA request e-FORM in order to be placed on a leave; e-FORMS are accessible through the Monmouth University student portal, myMU. The deadline to submit this request is by the conclusion of the course change (add/drop) period. Please consult the official University academic calendar for specific dates. All degree requirements must be completed as specified in the “Time Limitation” section of this catalog. Students on a LOA may not attend another institution and transfer credits back to Monmouth University.
