The Application for Leave of Absence is now an electronic form. The form will ask you for your Employee ID, Name and Supervisor, Department Head or Program Director in order to correctly route your request for approval. In addition, you will fill out information regarding the leave that you are requesting, transportation information, insurance coverage, and estimated expenses.

For your convenience, we have provided thorough instructions on submitting and reviewing Leave of Absence forms.

Submitting a Leave of Absence (Employee)

Faculty and Adjuncts, please note: once you select your employee group you will be given a box to select your Department Head or Program Director. Once the form is submitted to that person, they will then forward your request on to the Associate Dean that provides approval for the leave. If you have questions about who you should be submitting your document to, please contact your department Support Professional or Human Resources for assistance.
