Medical leave of absence

Students should consider requesting a medical leave of absence (MLOA) for situations that significantly limit their ability to function successfully or safely in their role as students. The physical health situations below are examples of some reasons why a student might request a leave of absence:

  • Severe and prolonged physical or mental illness
  • Surgery
  • Pregnancy

To request a Medical Leave of Absence, please go to the Registrar’s Office (FIU OneStop) or fill out a Student Petition form and submit it to FIU OneStop.
