Military Leave Process

Academic personnel who serve in the armed forces may be eligible for a military leave of absence under state and federal law.


  1. The employee completes the Military Leave of Absence Request form and submits it, along with a copy of the military orders, to the unit.
  2. The dean’s or chancellor’s office reviews the request and signs the form.
  3. The dean’s office forwards the completed and signed form to Academic Human Resources.
  4. The unit enters the appropriate leave information into payroll (MLP for up to 21 days, after 21 days record as LWO).
  5. AHR notifies the employee that the leave has been recorded.
