Inactivation, Deactivation and Reactivation
Inactivation and Reactivation
Students who do not register in any fall or spring semester will be inactivated by the Registrar and will be unable to enroll for classes and their CATCards will be deactivated. To be reactivated please contact the Graduate College; there is no fee for reactivation following inactivation for less than one year.
Deactivation and Reactivation
Deactivation is equivalent to withdrawal from a graduate program. Students who do not enroll in their program following the termination date of a Leave of Absence will be deactivated from the Graduate College. Students who, prior to completing enrollment for all credit requirements for a graduate program, do not enroll for one or more credits for a period of one calendar year and are not on an approved Leave of Absence will be considered to have withdrawn from the degree program and deactivated from the college.
Students who have completed all credits required for their degree, but have not completed all graduation requirements, do not enroll in continuous registration (GRAD 901, GRAD 902 or GRAD 903) for a period of one calendar year and are not on an approved Leave of Absence will be considered to have withdrawn from the degree program and deactivated from the college.
Reactivation into a program following deactivation requires the approval of the program and the Graduate College. Students seeking reactivation must complete the Reactivation Form and pay a $40 Reactivation fee and, if reactivation is approved, all other outstanding fees. At the program's discretion, a new application may be required for students requesting to return after 1 or more years away.
