Spring 2020 / COVID-19 update
Students who are considering a leave of absence during spring 2020 should contact their residential college dean as soon as possible. Normal leave of absence policies and procedures will apply: please note in particular that the deadline has passed for requesting a one-semester leave.
Students on Financial Aid: please be aware that any spring credit resulting from a reduction in charges due to COVID-19 will be adjusted if a student later withdraws. Contact Kate Dolly with specific questions (email@example.com ).
Students who were approved to remain on campus: please be aware that if you decide to take a leave of absence from the current term, you may not remain in campus housing.
Each year, a number of Princeton undergraduates interrupt their studies for a variety of reasons. Some students will choose to take a leave of absence to take care of a health issue, to pursue a professional or volunteer opportunity, to attend to family matters, or to reconsider academic goals. This website is designed to help students navigate the leave-taking process, thrive during their time away and plan for a successful re-entry into the Princeton campus community.
