Students are expected to make regular progress toward the completion of their degree. Occasionally students find that circumstances prevent them from continuing (e.g. medical, financial or personal) in the next semester. In such cases a student may apply for a leave of absence by submitting a Leave of Absence Request form to Student Services. A leave may be granted by the Registrar for up to one year, in which case a student is guaranteed a space in his/her program upon return. Students who find it necessary to remain away from studies at Emily Carr for more than one year may be required to reapply for admission with a portfolio. Request forms are available on the website under Student Services > Forms.
Students may be required to take a leave from their studies and attendance at the University in the rare circumstances where it is determined through a risk assessment process that a student may be at severe risk of harm to self and/or others, or severe disruption to the teaching and learning environment or University community (see Assessment and Treatment Care Plan Policy). The student may be on leave until such time that the risk has been mitigated through treatment from external medical/mental health practitioners and the safety of the individual and of the community is addressed.

Some curriculum areas require the completion of a review panel at the third and/or fourth year of study, often as a necessary component of a core course. A review panel is made up of a group of faculty who examine a student’s body of work for competence and maturity at his or her level of study.
The Dean’s’ Office contacts students requiring Review Panels with information about scheduling and their programs’ specific requirements.
