2020-2021 Catalog Winter Update

Discontinuous Enrollment

If a degree or certificate seeking student does not complete at least one course in four consecutive academic terms, he/she will be discontinued from the University at the beginning of the fifth quarter of non-enrollment. Once a student is discontinued from the University, he/she must reapply under the terms and conditions set forth in the Admission Policy and will only be admitted to programs that are active at the time of readmission. Exceptions to discontinuing enrollment of specific students may be approved by the Provost.

Double Degree Programs

Students enrolled in double degree programs offered through partnership institutions may have program specific needs that require maintaining active student status beyond four terms of non-enrollment.

Students with U.S. veterans benefits are subject to different regulations concerning discontinuous enrollment and should consult the Veterans Affairs Office at 206-239-4539 because their benefits could be adversely impacted by long-term, discontinuous enrollment.
