If a student plans not to be enrolled in a long semester, he or she must apply for a leave of absence. To re-enter, she/he must apply to the University for permission. The re-entry form is available from the Graduate Advisor. The application should be submitted as soon as possible after the student has made a decision to re-enter, especially if he/she has taken courses at another school in the interim.
If a student registers and withdraws before the 12th class day, he/she must reapply for admission to Graduate School or have his/her original admission extended by petition from the Graduate Advisor to the Dean of the Graduate School. If a student withdraws after the 12th class day of the first semester of graduate work and does not enroll for the following semester, he/she must see the Dean of Graduate Studies before registering again.
