An applicant who, after being granted admission by the Graduate School, does not enroll for three or more consecutive academic sessions (including the summer session) must submit a new application and pay the application fee. Updated or additional admission information may be required. Conditions may be placed on admission.
Students who have interrupted their graduate study must submit a new application if three or more consecutive academic sessions (including summer session) have elapsed since their last registration. Upon the recommendation of the department and on a case by case basis, special consideration will be given to students returning to continue their graduate studies after being called to active military service.
Course credits earned by a student whose graduate study and/or professional activity has been inactive for five years or more cannot be used on a plan of study for an advanced degree. A plan of study approved prior to such a period of inactivity is invalid. A preliminary examination passed prior to such a period of inactivity is invalid.
Readmission is granted by the dean of the Graduate School. The dean of the Graduate School will notify students who have been readmitted, and a copy of the readmission letter will be sent to the department.
