Student Handbook


Xavier University provides support services and resources for students to address their medical needs, including physical and mental health needs.  Even so, there may be occasions when a student experiences health needs outside of the scope and level of care that Xavier can provide.  In these circumstances, the student may take a voluntary leave of absence.  In situations when a student is unwilling to take a leave of absence and there are fact-based allegations that the student is a threat to self or others, the Dean of Students, or designee, may initiate a process to provide an individualized assessment to determine if a mandatory leave is necessary.  The Dean of Students or designee will appoint the Leave of Absence Committee to move forward with the process and decision making as described in Section 3.9.3.
