If you do not intend to register for classes in the fall or spring semester, please request a CUNY BA Leave of Absence in writing (email is fine) to your CUNY BA academic advisor who will share that with our Registrar. [This is not necessary for winter or summer sessions, only fall and spring.]

Check with your home college to see if you need to submit a leave of absence request there, as well.

When you are ready to return to school the following semester, please contact your home college’s Registrar to insure that you are still recorded as a matriculated student. You may need to submit a readmit application; some CUNY colleges will de-activate your matriculation when you are not taking courses and you will have to file a request to re-matriculate.

CUNY BA generally allows students to take two consecutive semester Leaves of Absence; if you have special circumstances, please discuss that with your CUNY BA advisor and we will work with you.
