Break in Enrollment

LAPU students may take a break from enrollment in classes for less than three semesters or consecutive terms by notifying their designated student support staff member. These absences however are determined by the university as not meeting the definition of an approved leave of absence (LOA) under Title IV regulations. Students who take an academic LOA are not permitted to complete the coursework they began prior to the LOA without retaking their courses as mandated by 34 CFR 668.22(d)(1)(vii). Students who take an LOA are reported as withdrawn from their coursework and are subject to R2T4 requirements. Students who do not attend for three full semesters or consecutive terms will need to reapply to the university.
