Complete the online Application for Leave form after you have been accepted to your study abroad program or before the deadline listed below in order to notify Davidson of your official plans to study abroad. You do NOT need to submit this item for summer programs. The Application for Leave deadline is:
Fall and Academic Year:  March 15
Spring:  November 1

The Application for Leave form notifies study abroad, financial aid, business services, residence life, and the registrar of your plans. Pay close attention to your email for further instructions from each office.

There is a $250.00 penalty if a student submits the Leave form after March 15 for the fall semester/academic year or after November 1 for the spring semester. There is a $500.00 penalty if a student submits the Leave form after June 15 for the fall semester/academic year or after January 1 for the spring semester.

Students participating in a partner provider program for the fall/academic year will be billed a nonrefundable $350.00 administrative fee when the Leave Form is submitted. This will be directly charged to your student account.

Study Abroad Office: Once you submit the Leave Form, you will receive a “Final Program Selection Confirmation” form through e-mail from the on-line system. Please complete and submit it to the blue forms box in the Study Abroad Office hallway. Additional items for the following departments are also required:

Registrar’s Office: Complete and submit the Pre-Authorization to Transfer Credit form to the Registrar’s Office, which approves all transfer and distribution requirement credit. You will often not know specific courses in advance. That is okay; list up to six probable courses. Others may later be approved by email to the registrar.

Financial Aid Office: Read the two important instructional pages in the Student Financial Assistance Information for External Study. Also, please complete the Direct Deposit Request for External Study and submit it to Business Services.

Business Services: If applicable, submit the Direct Deposit Request for External Study to Business Services.  Also, please make sure you do not have any outstanding charges on your student account. This includes unpaid parking tickets, overdue library book(s), DVD fines etc.

Residence life: Please also be familiar with the information posted under Study Abroad and On-leave Student Housing. If you have specific questions or concerns that pertain to this department, please directly contact them.
