    Continuous Enrollment

    Because of the learning community organization of the doctoral program, continuous enrollment in the required courses is essential. In the event that a student must miss one or more core courses, the following applies:

    • The student must apply for a leave of absence.
    • A student who returns from a leave within two calendar years from the date the leave was granted will be automatically reinstated in the doctoral program. If the leave lasts longer than two calendar years, the student must apply for re-admission.
    • Upon return from the leave, the student’s placement will be determined by the program director in consultation with EdD faculty. These stipulations will apply:
      • A student who has completed 6 or more terms (2 or more years) will complete the remaining terms through directed study(ies) with faculty member(s).
      • A student who has completed fewer than 6 terms (less than 2 years) will be placed in the next available learning community and will complete the required courses with that community.
