Once you have been accepted to your program and commited to going, File a Notice of Study Leave form (which includes a waiver) via eBear. For students interested in studying abroad for the Spring '14, these are due by November 1, 2013 by 5:00 p.m. You will not be officially on leave until you submit this form. Bills from the bursar, memos from the registrar etc will assume you are NOT studying abroad until you submit the Notice of Study Leave. This is very important!! To submit, log onto your eBear account, click on the Study Abroad tab, choose the Notice of Study Leave form in the left-hand navigation bar. Complete and submit.
