Leave of Absence

Undergraduate students may be able to take an Academic Leave (time away from studies) for up to one year (12 months). Taking an Academic Leave may impact your financial assistance or awards, and there may be special considerations if you are an International Student.

Students who wish to apply for a leave of absence will need to obtain approval from the Co-Director at the school they will be on leave from and must be in ‘Good Standing’. Ensure you read the full details and take any additional steps necessary as outlined on this ESS link: https://academicservices.engineering.ubc.ca/degree-planning/academic-leave/.

Please send a copy of your completed and signed leave of absence form to both the UBC and UNBC Advisors.
