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.
