The college recently revised its policy for students who require a leave of absence. The revised policy allows students who encounter medical problems to take a leave with greater leeway.
The Jed Foundation, a non-profit mental health group, evaluated the college’s mental health services and recommended that the college institute a change to the existing leave of absence policy, according to Vice President for Student and Campus Life Robert Bonfiglio.
