We do not currently have a policy on continuous enrollment for master’s degree programs. Such a policy would enable administrators of master’s degree programs to anticipate instructional needs based on enrollment with greater accuracy and allow programs to better anticipate faculty workload needs and University resources utilized in master’s degree programs. A university-wide graduate continuation course will also be proposed to the curriculum committee that will allow students to maintain continuous enrollment while preparing their thesis, should their program not have such a course in place. Individual master’s degree programs may implement more restrictive policies concerning continuous enrollment. A student who takes more academic leave time than allowed by the policy will need to re-apply to the university and the program.





All CSUCI students enrolled in a Master’s Degree program.

Policy Text

A graduate student must maintain continuous enrollment during their course of study at CSUCI. Any graduate student in good academic standing who cannot maintain continuous enrollment may apply to take a leave of absence from the University for at most four consecutive semesters. No more than six cumulative semesters of leave may be taken.
