Leave of Absence

Take time away from WashU

Every now and then, students may need to take time away from their studies at the School of Continuing & Professional Studies (CAPS). 

Current degree or certificate-seeking students may take a leave of absence. Please contact your advisor today to let them know your plans.

We know life is busy. That’s why our faculty and staff are here to work with you on a personal level to ensure your transition back to school is as smooth as possible.

Returning Students ≫

If you have previously been admitted to one of our degree programs, your credits do not expire and you do not need to reapply. Unless you have completed additional academic work since you were last enrolled at CAPS, there is no need to resend your transcripts.
