Leave of Absence
No fulltime student can be absent from the university for a fall or spring semester without an approved Leave of Absence. Students who plan to take a fall or spring semester away from Villanova to participate in an internship (or any other activity) must apply for a Leave of Absence by sending the request with details and documentation to the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs. Without an approved Leave of Absence, the student will not be considered a Villanova student. Lack of status may have repercussions in the student’s financial aid situation. This rule does not apply to summer.
