Withdrawal from the University
The Navigator 2012-14
Due to unexpected circumstances, some students need to withdraw during a quarter while others choose to leave or take a break from their studies after completing the quarter. Students who plan to return to UCSC may request Leave of Absence (LOA) status. LOA status is the advance approval to enroll at UCSC in a future quarter. Some University services are available to students in LOA status. The $70 LOA fee is nonrefundable and nontransferable.
Note: If before the quarter begins, you decide not to attend UCSC, you may either contact your college about filing for a leave of absence, or notify the Office of the Registrar via the cancellation notice if you do not plan to return to UCSC (see If You Decide Not to Attend).
