Completing In Absentia

In absentia status applies to students who are completing final degree requirements after exiting from the University and permanently leaving the campus. Students whose only remaining academic requirements can be completed off campus may apply for in absentia status. Applications require the approval of the academic advisor and the dean, and are generally approved for a maximum of one year.

Students in absentia will be registered for 3 research credits. In absentia status students will cease to receive stipend and award payments and any other on campus benefits.
