Policy on Continuing Student Status

For the purpose of determining eligibility to register, continuing students are defined as students whose enrollment at UIC has not been interrupted for two or more semesters in succession (summer session is excluded). Students who lose continuing status are considered "former students." Reapplication and readmission to the University are required should they wish to re-enroll after having lost continuing status.

In extenuating circumstances, a college may grant a leave of absence extending a student's continuing status, provided that a request for leave is submitted prior to the tenth day of instruction that begins the period of leave. Upon approval, the college will notify the Office of the Registrar indicating the reasons for and the duration of the leave.

NOTE: Foreign students must contact the Office of International Services if they do not intend to enroll for any term.
