Students who are obliged to interrupt their studies may, with the
approval of their graduate program director, register for matriculation
continued (leave of absence). There is no tuition fee for this
registration although a small student computer fee is charged. This
category of registration is available only to students not present on
campus and not using faculty time and university research facilities.
All graduate students who are on campus and engaged in the completion
of degree requirements must register for at least 1 credit per semester.
Late registration for matriculation continued is not allowed beyond the
second week of the semester. After this time, the student is required to
apply for reinstatement and, depending on degree status, may be subject
to a restorative fee. Students wishing to drop all courses and add
matriculation continued must do so prior to the first day of the semester.
