Study Leave Applications: Extension in Deadlines

Because of a security breach, the server that hosts the application used for study leaves is not available.  As a result, the deadlines for applications will be extended.  Because it is not known when the server will be available, the new deadlines have not yet been specified.

If you have questions about this, please contact Peter Barcher ([log in to unmask]).
