During your time at the University of Colorado Anschutz, you may experience life situations, or medical and/or psychological conditions that significantly interfere with your academic and personal success. In these instances, it may be necessary to take time away from CU Anschutz to focus on your health. A medical leave of absence is intended to provide you with the opportunity to fully attend to your health and wellbeing. CU Anschutz has created a process to support you in navigating the process of taking a Medical Leave of Absence.

The first step is filling out the application. Next, Case Management will contact you to understand more about your concerns and walk you through the next steps in the process. This process will coordinate communication between you and your school/college and appropriate University offices. 

If you have questions or want to talk with someone before you submit your application please reach out to the Office of Case Management here or at (303) 724-8488.
