Academic Status Policies of the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences require students to fully participate in their medical education, as defined by the standard curriculum.
If you are facing circumstances that will interrupt your continuous registration, you must secure a formal Leave of Absence* for the relevant semester(s).
*Students approved for a leave of absence remain liable for any outstanding tuition and fee charges on their student account.
Depending on your plans to return from a leave of absence, you may be adhering to a new medical school curriculum. Please discuss your plans with OME deans or the registrar prior to submitting a petition.
