Medical Leave of Absence
Purpose and Procedures
Fordham University is concerned about its students' health and well-being, and is interested in students receiving appropriate physical or mental health care when necessary. A student experiencing physical or psychological conditions that significantly impair his/her ability to function successfully or safely as a student may decide that a period of time away from Fordham University for treatment or recovery is warranted.
This time away from the University may help to restore functioning to a level that will enable the student to return and perform successfully in the classroom and within the campus community.
