 Leave of Absence   
Given the financial constraints, we know you may be considering taking a Leave of Absence for Summer 2020. Before you do, speak with your Head of Department and Student Financial Services about reducing your course load and arrange payment options in order for you to continue your academic progress and take advantage of UCC's summer discounts. If after this consultation the situation still remains challenging, we understand that it will be a difficult decision to pause your studies, but ensure you submit your Leave of Absence form to your Programme Coordinator via email before the close of registration on May 23, 2020.
