Matriculation Continued

Students who are obliged to interrupt their studies may, with approval of the associate dean for Student and Academic Services, register for Matriculation Continued. Registering for Matriculation Continued will keep the student's status active for one semester. Students must register for Matriculation Continued for each fall and spring semester until they resume taking courses. Failure to follow this procedure will result in the student's status changing to inactive, and the student will have to be readmitted to the M.P.A. program in order to take courses again. There is no tuition fee for this registration, although a student fee and a computer fee are charged. Matriculation Continued only applies to fall or spring semesters; there is no need to register for Matriculation Continued for the summer or winter semester.

Time Limits on Matriculation Continued

Students can only register for Matriculation Continued for four consecutive semesters (equal to two years). After this time, the student has to enroll in courses and finish the program.

Time Limits on Completion of the Degree

From the semester during which the student is admitted, completion of the M.P.A. program must occur within seven calendar years. If a student is admitted in fall 2015, for example, that student must finish by summer 2022. This includes any semesters of Matriculation Continued. A one-year extension may be approved by the M.P.A. director in the event of extraordinary circumstances. Students who fail to complete the degree within these parameters will be subject to dismissal from the program.
