Leave of Absence

Undergraduate students who wish to take a break from their studies for one or more semesters (other than summer semester), for a variety of reasons, must file a Leave of Absence or Deferral form online.

A leave of absence is for students who have already completed a semester or more at USU, and then need to take a break.

A deferral is for students who have not started classes at USU and need to delay their admission to a future semester. Students who have only completed concurrent enrollment classes will use a deferral to delay their admission.
