Effect of Leave of Absence on Student Financial Aid for Degree Programs

For degree program students, a leave of absence is not considered an official leave of absence under federal Title IV regulations. When a student takes an institutional LOA, the student will be considered ineligible for Title IV purposes. As a result, a return to Title IV calculation will be done and the student will be reported to his or her lender as less than half time enrolled. The time on a LOA will be counted against the six month grace period for entering repayment on the federal financial aid loans. The student will enter repayment, if the student does not return from leave within six months.

Please note that this is not applicable to military students.
