Students who are not enrolled at least once during three consecutive quarters, prior to the end of the third week of the third quarter, are subject to being discontinued from their programs. Students who are discontinued but who want to return at a later date must apply for readmission
Note: Because SNL’s competency-based BA programs (Individualized Focus Area, Computing, General Business, and Early Childhood Education) are being retired, students in those programs who do not maintain active status cannot be readmitted to the competency BA programs. Instead, those students can be considered for readmission to one of the other continuing BA programs (Applied Behavioral Sciences
, Decision Analytics
, and Leadership Studies
). Students in the competency BA programs who maintain active status will have through Spring 2023 to complete their degree requirements and graduate. For more information, see the FAQ for this update to our programs
To maintain Active Status, consider the following enrollment options:
Active Status Continuation (LL 050) is a 0-credit, ungraded enrollment available to students who are working on independent
projects that will be submitted in fulfillment of degree requirements but otherwise will not be enrolled and would be subject to discontinuation. To request registration in LL 050, students should first discuss their plans with their faculty mentor
, whose approval is required, and then submit a registration request using the Registration Form
. All LL 050 registration requests are subject to Associate Dean permission.
