Leave of Absence for Graduate Associates

We understand that there may be an instance where a graduate associate (GA) might require a leave of absence to care for themselves and/or family. Since every situation is different, the College of Education and Human Ecology, in accordance with the guidelines established by the Graduate School and Office of Human Resources, will individually review requests and guide you through the process for leaves of absence to support GAs through:

  • personal and/or family illness
  • bereavement
  • childbirth
  • adoption

As both a student and employee, there are certain policies and procedures you must follow, but we are here to help guide you through the process. Any GA who would like to request a leave of absence should contact the Graduate Associate ManagerAmanda Crall, who will guide you through the leave process.
