All students are required to be in status each semester. This means that students must either be registered or be on an approved leave of absence. Individuals who are not in status will be considered withdrawn from the Graduate Center.
Registration information is mailed to students prior to the start of each semester. It is expected that all registrations will be completed by the end of the registration period.
Students delinquent in their financial accounts or obligations to the library or with respect to any equipment loans from Information Technology will not be permitted to register, take a leave of absence, or officially withdraw; nor will they be issued transcripts or degree diplomas. In addition, students who fail to meet satisfactory progress requirements or to comply with New York State immunization laws, or who have outstanding obligations to the Offices of Financial Aid, Admissions, or Residence Life may not be permitted to register, take a leave of absence, or officially withdraw.
