Continuous Registration and Leaves of Absence
Students have seven years to complete all requirements for the MA in English, and continuous registration is expected of all students throughout their courses of study. Students planning not to take coursework or register for thesis credit during any fall or spring semester (or summer, if they plan to use university facilities or consult with faculty during that time) prior to completion of their degree must submit the appropriate continuous registration paperwork and fee to ensure continuous enrollment during the degree-seeking period. Students not continually registered or on an approved leave of absence risk being removed from degree-seeking status. See Graduate Degree Policies for additional details.
