Failure to enroll in three consecutive semesters is considered non-continuous enrollment. Students who do not maintain continuous enrollment will be discontinued, dropped from any future enrollment, and must file for readmission to the university. Readmission is not guaranteed. A student who breaks continuous enrollment will lose the option of fulfilling the degree requirements originally listed in the official Plan of Study already on file, and will instead fulfill the degree requirements listed in the graduate catalog in effect at the time the student resumes his/her attendance.
Additionally, all (domestic and international) students taking thesis or dissertation hours are required to be continuously enrolled (including summers) until the thesis or dissertation is completed.
