美國大學休學程序

我因為家庭問題,學期初剛開始就要休學。。。

1. 我必須於10月中/尾前回香港,並不確定可不可以再回美國讀書。這情況下,我應該先辦理休學比較好吧?還是直接辦理退學比較好?

2. 如果只是休學的話,我是不是只要withdraw所有已修的課程,然後和international student office說一聲就好?

3. 休學後,我的學籍一般可保留多久?如未能在學籍保留期期間回美國繼續課程,學校是不是會主動把我的學籍取消?

4. 申請休學後,以香港特區護照申請的F-1,我可以逗留(grace period)在美國多久?

先多謝大家的回答!

    1. In the U.S., there is no official procedure about withdrawing from the college. There is only a procedure for leaves of absence.

    2. Not that simple.

    a. Leave of absence must be applied in writing and approved by your department. Your school's registrar's office should have the information;

    b. If you have compelling reasons, your school can in fact retroactively drop your courses so that you will not penalized by "W" (But you will have to check with the school).

    In most of the case, international student office will be your last place to go (as they deal with your I-20 only).

    3. Usually 1 year. No - within the year of the leave of absence, the school simply keep your registration priority (as in most colleges, 1 semester/quarter of absence will trigger re-admit procedure).

    4. 30 days.
