Students who find an interruption in enrollment necessary should file a Petition for a Leave of Absence before leaving the University. A Leave of Absence allows students to maintain the existing graduation program. Failure to do so will mean that they must fulfill all graduation requirements in the catalog, which is current upon their return to WJU. Students withdrawn from the University for one academic year or more (official or unofficial leave of absence) may be required to update some or all of the admissions requirements. A Leave of Absence is good for a maximum of one year.
