Students may apply for a leave of absence from Bellin College for specific reasons and must be of a specific duration. An approved leave allows students to return without taking part in the re-admission process. All absences must be approved prior to leave, with the exception of bereavement and certain personal necessity leaves. Supporting documentation must accompany the request for leave (i.e., military orders, medical documentation, jury duty notification, etc.). Leaves of absence are not allowed for the purpose of attending another academic institution.
Students should contact the Bellin College academic office when requesting to return from a leave of absence. Students must provide supporting documentation before they can return from a leave of absence. The official return date and course program of study will be discussed prior to the return date. Students may also want to consider a deferred progression as an option for leaving the college (please refer to Exit/Withdrawal policy).
