CAP advising

General information

[general information about CAP to be added]

CAP mentoring needs to be logged on SAIS.

CAP mentees - leave of absence or leaving school

If one of your CAP mentees wishes to take a leave of absence (LOA) or drop out, please ask them to contact the Academic Affairs (AA) team first. The AA team will guide the students and explain the process to them.

Process for leave of absence or dropping out

For your information, an outline of this process is here:

  • Step 1: Meet the CAP advisor (you)

  • Step 2: Meet the Academic Advisor (Prof. Ines Mzali)

  • Step 3: Meet the Counselor

  • Step 4: Meet the Program Director and/or the Dean

Your responsibility as CAP advisor

For students requesting a leave of absence:

  1. Ask for the main reason why they want to apply for LOA

  2. Fill out a detailed counseling log with relevant information

    • E.g.: About the situation the student is currently facing

For students who want to drop out:

  1. Ask for the main reason why they want to drop out

  2. Ask about their plan after dropping out

    • Specifically, if a student plans to transfer to another school, ask if they will transfer to a Korean university or go abroad.
      This information is needed for the annual report to the Korean education administration

  3. Fill out a detailed counseling log with relevant information

    • E.g.: About the situation the student is currently facing

Please Note

The process is sequential. The meeting with you must happen first before any of the other meetings can take place.

The dean will have the final say in approving the requests. At the final step of the dean's review, insufficient documentation (such as a sparse consultation log) can result if the process needing to be restarted.

Often, these applications from students are time sensitive. Please treat requests for leave of absence or dropping out with high importance and urgency.
