This policy defines the parameters for readmission to the Graduate School after one or more semesters of no enrollment.
Previously enrolled graduate students
If a graduate student is not continuously enrolled for fall and spring semesters, they are required to apply for readmission to the Graduate School through the online application. The readmission process accomplishes two goals: (1) assures the Graduate School that graduate students are in good standing with their academic program; and (2) activates their enrollment eligibility. To apply for readmission, graduate students must also contact their program for further details of the readmission process at the program level.
A returning student who is pursuing a second degree at the same level within five years of graduation must comply with double degree requirements.
A returning student is subject to the Graduate School’s time limits. Credits earned by master's degree students who have been absent for five or more consecutive years will no longer apply toward degree requirements. Credits earned by doctoral students who have been absent for ten or more consecutive years will no longer apply toward degree requirements.
