We know that sometimes degree-seeking students need to take a break from classes for a semester or two. Unforeseen circumstances sometimes stall your progress toward completing your degree. Our admissions policies address these kinds of breaks in enrollment.

Once admitted to a degree-seeking program at the undergraduate or graduate level, students generally remain enrolled for all three of our semesters: fall, spring and summer. But when things happen and you’re not able to remain enrolled, you won’t have to re-apply unless you miss three or more consecutive semesters (including summer).

Here’s how it works.

If you remain enrolled for consecutive semesters, you don’t need to do anything. Keep working with your advisor to plan your schedule and register in BannerWeb for classes every semester.

If you skip one or more semesters of enrollment, please complete the simple form on this page. We’ll check your academic record and get in touch to ask any questions and confirm your status with us.

Here’s the fine print.

In general, if you skip one or two semesters of enrollment, your registration account can simply be re-activated. If this applies to you, after we check your academic record, we’ll get in touch to confirm your re-enrollment.

If you skip three or more semesters of enrollment, we’ll ask you to submit an updated application for admission to your selected program of study. We’ll waive the application fee, and you’ll be subject to the program of study applicable to the semester of re-admission. Your advisor can walk you through any changes that may have occured in your program of study during the time you’ve been un-enrolled.

Here’s what we’re trying to do.

We want to make it as easy as possible to return to your program of study after taking a break, whatever the reason for the break. If you have questions, please reach out to your advisor or to the admissions coordinator, and they’ll be able to assist you.
