Medical Leave of Absence

Georgetown University is invested 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 mental health situations below are examples of some reasons why a student might request a leave of absence:

  • depression
  • anxiety
  • mental health conditions such as bipolar disorder and eating disorders
  • alcohol or drug evaluation and treatment

Students may contact CAPS to discuss taking a medical leave of absence.
