Family Leave

Although the Graduate School does not have a formal leave of absence policy for pre-dissertators, there are a number of family-friendly practices and resources for students considering taking a leave of absence for birth or adoption. Many departments and programs also have local policies. Students should consult with their program coordinator, advisor, and the Graduate School’s Office Academic Services as early as possible in their planning process.

Please visit the Graduate School’s Family and Parent Resources webpage for additional information.
