With the permission of their dean, a student may voluntarily take a medical leave of absence. In certain circumstances, the College may place a student on a medical leave involuntarily. Please review the Medical Leave Policy for details.
Veteran’s Readmission Policy
As a foundation of The Religious Society of Friends (i.e., the Quakers), Haverford College’s leave of absence policy makes no distinctions that pertain to a student’s reasons for taking time off; those who leave the college to serve in the armed forces are treated just as those who leave to perform community service, to support their families, to regain their motivation to study, to travel for personal enrichment, or to achieve any number of objectives. Please review the Veteran’s Readmission Policy for details.
