Continuous Enrollment Policy

Graduate students are required to enroll for at least one credit during at least two semesters (fall, spring, or summer) of every academic year in order to remain eligible for the degree. Students who fail to maintain continuous enrollment, as defined above, lose their eligibility for the degree and will have to reapply for admission.

Graduate students who find it necessary to temporarily suspend their studies may apply for a leave of absence from graduate study. Leave of absence is intended for students who are unable to pursue their studies at all, rather than for students who are actively working on their dissertation after completing course work.
