Leave of Absence

Leave of Absence

Students may choose to apply for leave of absence due to medical or personal reasons subject to the maximum candidature period allowed by SIT. First-year students or re-admitted students will not be granted leave of absence (LOA) during the first trimester/semester of their course of studies unless due to unforeseen medical conditions.

Students who require LOA should obtain approval in advance of the semester. Students who apply for LOA or Medical LOA 2 weeks after the start of the school term are required to pay fees for the entire trimester/semester.

Only LOA taken for personal reasons is counted towards the maximum candidature period. Students enrolling to SIT Conferred and Joint-Degree Programmes are required to refer to Academic Guide for the LOA application closing dates and the impact on grading.

SIT will review each application on a case-by-case basis on its individual merit or mitigating factors. The LOA application may be rejected if the reasons provided are deemed invalid. 

Process for Application of Leave Of Absence (LOA) 

1. You must submit the online LOA Application via the IN4SIT.
2. An interview will be arranged and you will be notified by email.
3. For Medical LOA, you must upload the medical certification from a recognised healthcare provider or medical practitioner upon application.
