Continuous Registration Policy

Graduate students must register for courses and pay associated tuition/fees each semester (not including summer and winter sessions) until the degree is awarded. Students who fail to maintain continuous registration are subject to dismissal by the Graduate School.
The Graduate School will grant a waiver to this policy in limited cases, with the recommendation of the Masters Programs Office. To apply for a waiver, complete the Graduate School Petition for Waiver of Continuous Registration form and submit it with a statement explaining the reasons to your campus advisor 30 days prior to the start of the term for which the waiver is sought.
