Financial Aid and LOA
Students on financial aid should review their awards with the Office of College Aid before deciding on a leave of absence. If they are recipients of Title IV loans, they are advised that their grace period for loan repayment may be exhausted should their leave of absence exceed 180 days within a twelve-month period. A student who has exhausted his/her grace period and is unable to begin repayment may apply for a deferment or forbearance of payment. Students should contact their loan servicer and the Student Loan Administration for more information before leaving campus.
