Return From Leave of Absence

We miss you and are looking forward to having you back! We understand that students sometimes need to take a break. We hope your leave of absence was productive and that you are planning to return to your Orange campus soon.

We would like to remind you that we are still here to offer support while you are away from Syracuse University. Perhaps you have questions, would like guidance on the readmit process, or would like to let us know how you are doing. Contact us at

If you are planning to return this fall, you should start the readmission process now. Steps to follow depending on type of leave include:

  • Personal Leave of Absence – Contact your school/college academic advisor to discuss the best strategy to return to full time studies, and to develop a support plan. After this conversation, you will be asked to complete an online Application for Readmission form.
  • Medical Leave of Absence – Contact Student Outreach and Support at 315.443.4357 to discuss any medical clearance and documentation needed to return.
  • Conduct Related – Contact Community Standards to discuss any outstanding sanctions pending. Once you are cleared to return, your home school/college advising office will be informed of clearance

We look forward to welcoming you back to campus!
