Leave of Absence
If in good standing, a student may petition for up to a two‑semester leave of absence from the MBA Program. Students who would like to take a leave of absence should complete a Leave of Absence form located at: http://www.grad.buffalo.edu/forms/students/pet_loa.pdf and submit it to their academic advisor in the Graduate Programs Office, 203 Alfiero.
He or she can return to complete requirements without any further petition at the conclusion of the approved period. A leave of absence does not accrue time towards the maximum time limit of any program. If there are unusual circumstances, a student may request an extension of the leave.
A student should advise his/her Program Office if he or she wishes to return earlier than the expiration date of the approved leave. A student data form will then be processed.
Approval can be obtained (by a written petition) to register for day courses in order to complete a concentration or take specific electives. No more than 12 hours may be taken in a single semester.
