Continuous enrollment is the earning of college credit in a least one semester during an academic year without interruption of progression. To retain catalog rights for graduation under the year of initial enrollment, a student is required to maintain continuous enrollment through the completion of the requirements for graduation. Emergency leave of absence for a term may be granted in those instances whereby absence is warranted. Leaves of absence must be requested and approved in advance of the term for which absence is anticipated. Leaves of absence must be approved by the Vice President of Student Services.
