Leaves of Absence

An academic appointee is considered to be on a leave of absence any time he or she takes a leave from normal duties during the prescribed periods of service. All Health Sciences faculty and academics are eligible for a leave of absence with prior approval. Please note that academic appointees who take leave without obtaining formal approval are in violation of University Policy. Leaves of ten (10) working days or less requires approval from the Department Chair. Leaves lasting greater than ten (10) working days requires additional documentation preparation and approval. Requests for leaves should be submitted to the Academic Resource Center at least one month prior to the requested effective date to allow sufficient time for processing. Sabbatical requests should be requested one quarter (three months) in advance of the effective date.
