Leaves & Withdrawals

Created with Sketch.

A leave of absence may be requested for professional engagements or sudden medical, family or personal situations.

Limited Leave of Absence

It is sometimes necessary for a student to be away from Manhattan School of Music for a few days to perform, take an audition, or for personal reasons. A limited leave of absence generally is not granted for a period more than two weeks per semester. The leave must be approved both by each of the student’s instructors and the Office of the Provost. The student remains registered for the semester and is responsible for all missed course work, exams, and juries, and for all fees associated with that semester.

Leave of Absence Policies at MSM:

Withdrawal

Students not wishing to return to the School should formally withdraw. Withdrawal forms are available in the Office of the Registrar. Withdrawn students are required to apply to the School for readmission if they wish to return. Information regarding reapplication to the School and auditions are available from the Office of Admission and Financial Aid.

For information regarding the financial implications of taking a leave of absence or withdrawing from the School, see Refunds in TUITION AND FEES in the School’s printed catalogue or on the Office of the Bursar page of this site.

Please be advised that leaves and withdrawals may affect immigration status and/or financial aid. You should consult with those offices in advance of making your decision.
