02.05.08.01 Inactive Status
A student may find it necessary to leave the School for one or two semesters and then return for normal studies. After consultation with the Assistant Dean of Academic Affairs (undergraduates) or the Associate Dean for Graduate Studies (graduates), a student may be approved for inactive status. Should a student begin an inactive status during the school year, reimbursement of tuition shall be made on the same basis as that of a withdrawing student. See refund schedule: www.rochester.edu/adminfinance/bursar/refund.htm
A student may not matriculate (enroll as a degree candidate) at another institution while on inactive status at Eastman. Students who wish to matriculate elsewhere must withdraw from Eastman and, should they wish to return to the School to complete their degree, must apply for readmission. Students who do not register for classes at the conclusion of their approved inactive period may be required to reapply for admission. Refer to the University Bursar's Office Schedule of Tuition & Fees: www.rochester.edu/adminfinance/bursar/charges.htm for inactive status fees and late registration fees.
Undergraduate students on inactive status for four (4) or fewer semesters remain in good standing. If a student is on inactive status for more than four (4) semesters for any reason, they will be required to reapply for admission to Eastman through the Office of Admissions and re-audition for studio placement. Students readmitted to a degree will be required to fulfill the requirements in their program of study that are in place at the time of their readmission. Exceptions to this policy will be considered by petition to the Assistant Dean of Academic Affairs on a case-by-case basis. (Updates approved by Undergraduate Curriculum Committee 2/5/2009)
