EO 665 Leave of Absence

Students will be placed on an EO 665 Leave of Absence for one of the following reasons:

  1. A student has not completed remediation at the end of their first semester and chooses not to return to SJSU for a second semester.
  2. A student fails to complete all remedial requirements within the one-year time limit.

 

NOTE:      

Students in remedial status are not eligible to apply for a personal or educational leave of absence.   They are only eligible for an EO 665 Leave of Absence until they have completed all remediation.


While on an EO 665 Leave of Absence, you cannot enroll in classes at SJSU even through Open University until you have completed your remedial requirements.

An EO 665 Leave of Absence is good for up to one year.  If you are placed on a leave of absence, you may return to SJSU without having to reapply if you complete your requirement within one year.  

SJSU does not accept lower division transfers.  Therefore, if you do not complete your requirement before the end of your one year leave of absence, you will need to reapply to SJSU once you are a junior.  

 

Completing Remediation

English:

If you are placed on an EO 665 Leave of Absence for not completing English remediation, you have until the beginning of your third semester to complete a course equivalent to LLD 2.  

If you have not completed a course by the beginning of your third semester, you must pass a course equivalent to English 1A in order to return.  

 

Math:

If you are placed on an EO 665 Leave of Absence for not completing math remediation you have two options:

  1. Retake the ELM and score 50 or higher.  It takes 4-6 weeks to receive the results.  If you pass, you must contact the Director of Developmental Studies to be cleared and reinstated.
  2. Pass an intermediate algebra or GE math class at a community college.  Your grade must be C or better.   Once you are enrolled in an appropriate course, contact the Director of Developmental Studies for information about reporting your grade.

NOTE:  Courses taken online will not be accepted unless exams are proctored.

Once enrolled in a course that will satisfy the requirement, the student should print the Grade Release form below, sign it and give it to the instructor.  It gives permission to send the final grade to the Director of Developmental Studies.   An official transcript must also be sent once grades are posted. 

A list of equivalent courses at community colleges is listed here.

If a student is unable to complete the requirement within one year of being placed on leave, that student would need to complete all lower division work and reapply to SJSU as a junior.
