Continuous Registration, Leave of Absence

All matriculated M.S.W. candidates must register each fall and spring term until earning the degree. If a student requires a leave of absence, application must be made in writing to the assistant dean for student services, who must approve the leave. Once approved for a leave of absence, the student must register during the established registration period for 19:910:800 Matriculation Continued (0). Students pay a $57 fee each term while on approved leave. Matriculation continued status is available only to students who are not present on campus and not using faculty time or university research facilities. Leaves of absence may not extend beyond two regular terms. Students who do not formally resume studies after two terms of approved leave must apply for readmission through the Office of Graduate and Professional Admissions.

Approved leaves will be granted only to students in good academic standing or if recommended by the Committee on Academic Standing and Student Review. Students who fail to register for more than two regular or two consecutive terms must apply for readmission through the Office of Graduate and Professional Admissions before resuming formal study.
