Requests for leave of absence to return home due to COVID-19

The following communiqué was issued to all students by the Campus Registrar, Kenneth Walters.

We trust that you and your loved ones continue to be safe during this COVID-19 pandemic.

Please be advised that if you submitted a leave of absence form in order to return home due to the COVID-19 pandemic, your student status for Semester 2 2019/2020 has not changed. You remain duly registered to complete the Semester and to participate in the recommenced classes which are now fully online. You were asked to complete the leave of absence form for information purposes only, so that we could formally account for all of our students. There is therefore no need for you to revoke that request for leave.

Kindly note that you are required to participate in the online classes April 6 – 24, 2020 and complete the relevant assessments for your courses as indicated by your lecturers. Please be reminded that there will be no face-to-face examinations.

We encourage you to continue to follow the recommendations of your health authorities related to COVID-19. Please also continue to check Campus websites and Apps for any updates.

We wish you every success during the remainder of the academic year.

Stay safe and be well.

The University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus
