Leave of absence

Leave of absence

Students can take a leave for a maximum of one year to maintain their MUIC student status; they are allowed to request a leave in the following situations:

Be conscripted into the army or military service.
Being sick or having health problems which need to take more than 20 percent of class hours to recover or to be treated properly; however, a medical certificate is required.
A student may ask for a leave for personal reasons provided that the student has been studying in the university for at least one trimester and has a CUM-GPA of at least 2.00.

Students are not allowed to take a leave in their first trimester; students who request a leave must be registered for at least 1 trimester in MUIC.

Please note that all requests need to be approved by the guardians as well as the Faculty and Curriculum Committees.

Students must contact the Office of the Registrar to fill the Leave of Absence form, explain the reason and identify the trimester in which they will return to study. If the Leave of Absence form is approved during the add /drop period, the student will receive a 90-percent refund of the tuition fees for that trimester and will be required to pay a 1,000 Baht fee for the leave.

However, if the form is approved after the add / drop periods, all classes in which they have registered that trimester will result in a withdrawal (W) grade, without a refund. In addition, they will be required to pay the 1,000 Baht fee.

If the students request a Leave of Absence when they have not even registered in that trimester, they will be required to pay a fee of 21,000 baht, which includes the Leave of Absence fee, in order to maintain their student status. Once the students would like to return in order to continue their studies, they have to request re-admission at the Office of the Registrar at least one week before registration day
