back to Department Regulations & Policies
The policy of the Department is that no part-time students will be allowed to enroll in the program. Students are expected to devote all their attention and energy to their research and to fulfilling the requirements for the graduate degree. Therefore, it is expected that students will not seek outside jobs and/or part-time employment. With the permission of the Departmental Head, approval of the faculty, and consent of the Dean, a student may be allowed to take a leave of absence from the program; in this case, leave time will not apply to the residence requirement.
