Apply for leave of absence
Leave of absence applications should be made before the census date of the semester in which you wish to commence your leave.
You should have satisfactorily completed the requirements for at least one subject from your course prior to applying for leave of absence.
All students can apply for leave of absence by logging into My Student Admin and clicking on the subjects tab and then selecting "Leave of absence" from the left hand column.
Once you have submitted your application:
- you will receive an email confirming receipt of your application, and
- (at a later date) another email informing you of the outcome of your application
Both emails will be sent to your UTS Webmail account.
Applications outside the usual guidelines
If you are applying for a leave of absence that falls outside the usual guidelines, where possible, you should attach any relevant documents to support your application.
Print out a copy of your completed application and attach it to your supporting documentation and submit it to your UTS Student Centre.
Any documents of a personal nature should be enclosed in an envelope and labeled confidential.
