Leave from Study (UG)
In exceptional circumstances with sufficient justification, students may apply for Leave from Study. Application for Leave from Study (Form RR - 8) should be made by student prior to the beginning of a regular term, in which the leave from study status will become effective. Under exceptional circumstances, such as health issues, the leave period can commence at other times. Application for Leave in the current term within two weeks prior to the commencement of the final examination period will normally not be accepted.
Approval of Leave from Study is granted by the relevant dean or the dean’s designate. Leave from Study cumulating to more than one academic year will normally not be granted. Permitted Leave from Study of a complete regular term will not count towards the time limit on registration.
Students who have taken leave from study paying no tuition in regular term (ie. Fall or Spring), a per credit tuition fee will be charged when resume study in the following Winter or Summer, with the maximum amount not exceeding the prevailing tuition fee for a regular term.
Students should note that the tuition of a withdrawn/ audited course is also determined according to the normal credits of the course concerned, at the same per-credit rate of the students' program.
Non-local students are reminded to obtain an appropriate visa to study in Hong Kong before their resumption of study. Please refer to the website of the Hong Kong Immigration Department for details.
