Personal leave

Leaves of short duration for personal reasons, such as a family emergency, a brief illness, or a personal crisis, can be granted at the discretion of the academic advisor and appointment supervisor and are to be negotiated on a case-by-case basis. Student employees with a research assistant (RA), teaching assistant (TA), or instructor-G (IG) appointment may request personal leave only for reasons not otherwise covered by the terms of the MIT-GSU collective bargaining agreement.
