Medical Leave of Absence (MLOA)

Georgetown University is interested in supporting the success of its students and the safety and welfare of the community. Students should consider requesting a medical leave of absence (MLOA) for situations that significantly limit their ability to function successfully or safely in their role as students. The physical health situations below are examples of some reasons why a student might request a leave of absence:

  • severe and prolonged illness
  • surgery
  • pregnancy

Students should visit the Student Health Center (SHC) and/or their Dean to receive more advice about a medical leave of absence for a physical health condition. For specifics regarding a MLOA for physical health conditions, follow the procedures outlined below.
