POLICY NAME: Continuous Enrollment

PURPOSE: To provide a definition of continuous enrollment. 


Once a student is admitted to a program at UMMC, that student is expected to be continuously enrolled throughout his/her tenure. In programs that follow a standard lock-step curriculum a student is not allowed to be enrolled in the program without registering for class hours unless he/she is on leave of absence. Any student in a program that is not lock-step who fails to register for classes for more than two consecutive semesters within the program’s course of study, will be placed on leave of absence or withdrawn from the program and must reapply and be readmitted. Students enrolled in a program but not registered for class hours may have their student insurance policy terminated.


SCOPE: All UMMC schools

PROCEDURES: None applicable
