At some point in your career at Utah Valley University, you may need to take some time away from your studies. Common reasons students choose to take a leave include: serving a religious or humanitarian mission, military service, family responsibilities, financial and employment reasons, or medical reasons. If you have already enrolled in at least one class at UVU and need time off for one or more semesters, then you must fill out a leave of absence (LOA). If you have questions about how the LOA process affects your tuition balance or academic transcript, please contact our office—we're here to help you!
