Re: Continuous enrollment for graduate and professional students
Effective fall 2013, all Twin Cities and Duluth graduate and professional students, except those enrolled in first professional programs (i.e., J.D., M.D., Pharm. D., D.V.M., D.D.S., L.L.M. degrees), will be required to register each fall and spring term in order to maintain active status. Students who have not yet registered for the upcoming term (excluding summer) will be discontinued.
An email notice from One Stop Student Services will be sent to any graduate and professional student not registered the week before classes start. If the student has not registered by the end of the second week of classes, they will be discontinued.
Those who wish to resume graduate work must request readmission to reactivate their status. It is at the discretion of each program and/or college to determine the best readmission path for a student. The student can be readmitted by the college or program via the Local Readmit Request form, which will be available on this page in the coming weeks. The college or program can also refer the student to the Graduate School, where they can apply through the express readmit or readmission process.
Students who experience circumstances that prevent them from maintaining active student status will also have the option to request a leave of absence. Full information on the Leave of Absence and Reinstatement from a Leave: Graduate Students can be found online.
In all cases, students should contact the major program for which they are applying for information about program content, deadlines, and whether additional materials (such as GRE scores or letters of recommendation) are needed.
