A relative's child just came back from her Freshman year of college on a leave of absence . How is that different from a withdrawal ?

It means you take a semester (or I suppose a year if they allow it) and intend to go back. I think withdrawal means you're not intending to go back.

My D had a friend who did that last year. It basically means that they will hold your spot for you and you do not need to go through any re-application process. They still were able to be reimbursed for a portion of the fees they had already paid.

my daughter is on a leave, and she is still considered a student. The details of her leave were worked out prior and she stays in contact with school.
Withdrawal you don't work out detail necessarily and you don't stay in touch.
