Leave of Absence
Students who wish to pause their studies and resume them at a future date should apply for a leave of absence. A leave of absence must be for at least a semester and may be granted for up to two years. To apply for a leave of absence, the student must fill out the Leave of Absence Form.
Before applying for a leave of absence, please note that:
While on a leave of absence, a student will not have access to Bentley’s residence halls, events, or activities. If the student has received a Title IV loan, and the leave lasts more than 120 days, the loan will go into repayment at the end of its grace period.
Withdrawal/Transfer from the University
If a student decides to leave the university permanently, the student should fill out the Withdrawal/Transfer Form. Once the withdrawal/transfer process is complete, the individual is no longer considered a Bentley student. Should an individual(s) change their mind after the withdrawal/transfer process is complete, the former student must reapply to Bentley through the Office of Admission. Students must also settle all payments due to the university with Student Financial Services.
