  School of Public Health 2018-2020 Academic Policies and Procedures Registration Maintaining Matriculation  

Maintaining Matriculation

All matriculated students at the Rutgers School of Public Health must maintain continuous matriculation from the time of admission until the completion of all degree requirements. Typically, this is achieved by enrolling in courses in the fall and spring semesters. (Summer semesters are not required.) Students who do not register for courses must register for Maintaining Matriculation or a Leave of Absence (which includes student scholar). For more information about a leave of absence, please see the Leave of Absence policy.

Maintaining matriculation

  • reserves a student's place in the degree program as a continuing student;
  • ensures that the student will continue to receive registration materials and any other mailings to enrolled students;
  • allows access to university facilities and services, such as the library and health services; and
  • enables application for student health insurance, if needed.

Registering for Maintaining Matriculation

To register for maintaining matriculation a student should contact the Office of the Registrar with approval of their adviser. This registration requires the payment of a $35 fee, plus the administrative fee, for each semester this type of registration is used.

Students Eligible for Maintaining Matriculation Status

  • Student who is working on incomplete grade(s) from prior semester.
  • Student who has successfully defended his or her dissertation/thesis and is awaiting graduation.
  • Student who is awaiting graduation due to missing a graduation date.
  • Student who has returned for a certificate having completed all required courses for the certificate.
See the Maintaining Matriculation policy for more information.
