Students who wish to interrupt their studies at any time before graduation may request a leave of absence.  Requests for leaves of absence may be granted by the Dean of Students in consultation with other officers of the University, as appropriate.  With respect to a voluntary leave of absence for medical reasons, the Dean of Students ordinarily will consult with Harvard University Health Services (which may consider information from the student’s current and/or former health care providers, if made available by the student).
