Leave of Absence Information for the Class of 2018 and Prior
A leave of absence is used to put your Regents’ Scholarship “on hold” and maintain eligibility for the scholarship.

Refer to the Deferment Information if you will not be enrolling Fall Semester immediately after high school. A leave of absence is generally used when you are:
Leave of absence requests for reasons such as traveling, attending a non-eligible college/university or working to save money will not be approved. Requests for a leave of absence are evaluated on a case-by-case basis, with no guarantee of approval. The scholarship will expire five years from the date of high school graduation; a leave of absence does not extend this expiration.
Students must submit their leave of absence request through the Regents’ Scholarship Student Portal . The online leave of absence form can be found on the Payments/Leave Request tab. With the online form, students must also submit proof of completion from the previous semester attended and supporting documentation related to the leave request. Under each section below, the acceptable supporting documents are listed.
Leave of absence requests are due by the following deadlines:
You are responsible for managing your scholarship even while on a leave of absence. Receiving an approved deferment or leave of absence does not exempt you from meeting requirements and deadlines. Be sure to check your account regularly or have an authorized person do it for you.
It is highly recommended that you mail in the Student Information Release Form to authorize someone else to receive information about your account while you are on deferment. If you will not be able to monitor your scholarship account online, it is STRONGLY recommended that you authorize someone to act on your behalf by obtaining and submitting a copy of a notarized power of attorney.
Required Supporting Document: You must submit a copy of your military orders that state the length of time you will be gone and the date you will report for service.
Required Supporting Document: You must submit a letter from the program on letterhead stating the length of time you will be gone and the service you will be participating in. This letter needs to include details regarding the service you will be providing.
When returning from a leave of absence, you will follow the instructions provided on the Renewal and Payment Request Instructions in order to “re-activate” your scholarship.
