Policy Statement: 

Discontinued Enrollment

A student may voluntarily resign from their program of study by requesting “discontinuance.” Once this request is granted, the student resigns their place in the program and if they choose to return to their studies at a later date, they must reapply for admission. Discontinuance is requested through the Progress to Degree Form.
