New Jersey STARS and students in selective programs may apply for up to one year leave of absence from the College by completing a form that is available in the Department of Counseling. The leave allows students to return to the College within a year without applying for readmission and without a change in requirements for a degree or certificate program. Failure to obtain a Leave of Absence means that the student must apply for readmission to return. Should students need any further assistance with the withdrawal/leave of absence process, please contact the Department of Counseling for further advisement or assistance. The Department of Counseling is located in Edison Hall, Room 100, 732.906.2546.
