Thinking about taking a leave?

Everyone’s path through Princeton is unique, and if you are considering taking a leave the first thing you should do is meet with your residential college dean to talk through the options that make sense for you. Your dean will be able to explain all of the University policies about leaves, help you work out how a leave affects your academic progress to degree, and let you know about all of the resources available to students taking a break from their studies. If you are a student who receives financial aid, you should also connect with a Financial Aid officer so you fully understand the aid that will be available to you when you return.
