Change of Status

Ursinus has three different change of status options for students. Please read the descriptions below and select the change of status that fits your situation.

  • Medical Leave of Absence (MLOA)
    If you experience a medical situation that significantly limits your ability to function successfully or safely as a student, you can request a medical leave of absence (MLOA).  A MLOA allows you to take a break from College life and your studies for the remainder of the semester. After receiving treatment you can request to return to the College with an enhanced opportunity to achieve your academic and co-curricular goals.
  • Leave of Absence (LOA)
    You may encounter circumstances other than medical, that require you to take time away from the College. A leave of absence (LOA) allows you to take the needed time away.
  • Withdraw
    If you are considering transferring or leaving the College permanently you may request a Withdraw.
