Under exceptional circumstances that necessitate a short-term leave of absence from course work, ASD will consider a request for a stasis withdrawal. This specialized type of withdrawal (available to ASD students only) provides the opportunity to temporarily withdraw from a course for a limited time period.
The need for this exceptional accommodation must be directly related to the disablement or medical condition.
In addition to the factors that are considered for a medical withdrawal, ASD will be concerned with:
Upon discussing the needs with you, ASD will identify a prospective restart date (minimum of 2 months and maximum of 12 months). While all of the factors will be taken into consideration, the duration of the leave of absence will be heavily influenced by the original start date of the course(s) and the academic progress to date. Such restrictions tend to benefit the student in a number of ways, and include some assurance of course currency.
Before forwarding the recommendation to the Office of the Registrar, ASD will:
Please Note: If the course is revised during the time that you are inactive, you will be assessed a learning resources fee when you restart the course. In addition, once you have restarted, you will need to complete all assignments and exams.
Upon your acceptance of the above, ASD will forward the request and recommendations to the Office of the Registrar for approval and processing.
Written confirmation of the decision on recommendations will be forwarded.
