Readmission to the Masters Program in Egyptian Art
For graduate students who have an hiatus during their course of study at the University
(from the Graduate Catalog web site
"Once accepted into a degree program, a student is expected to enroll every semester
thereafter (excluding summer sessions) and make satisfactory progress toward the degree.
A student who does not enroll for one Fall or Spring semester must apply for readmission
. Submission of an application for readmission
does not ensure acceptance. An application for readmission may be rejected or additional
requirements may be imposed on the student. A readmitted student must follow the rules,
prerequisites, and degree requirements listed in the most current Graduate Bulletin.
Students writing a thesis or dissertation or engaged in a culminating or capstone
project must enroll on a continuous basis (Fall and Spring) until the thesis, dissertation,
or project is complete. Most programs require at least one culminating experience
course; see specific program requirements for details. A student must be enrolled
for at least 1 hour each Fall and Spring semester until the thesis, dissertation,
or project is complete. A student must be enrolled in the Summer semester if the thesis,
dissertation, or project will be completed then. Failure to so register will result
in the student being charged tuition for each semester he or she did not enroll."
