FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Graduate students may request a leave of absence from their graduate program. If a leave of absence is approved, an enrolled student does not have to register for a semester and will not be charged a $100 per semester continuous registration fee. COVID-19 related circumstances qualify under the ‘Illness, required military service, or other extenuating circumstances’ category. A leave of absence request must be approved by your department, by a financial aid counselor (if you are receiving financial aid), by the Office of Global Engagement (international students only), and by the Graduate School.
Awarding of graduate degrees will continue as usual.
No. We recommend scheduling virtual sessions when feasible.
Application processing will continue as usual. There may be delays in processing applications for which hard copies of transcripts are submitted.
During this time, the School of Graduate Studies can still accept mailed transcripts from your institution, however, submitting paper transcripts may result in processing delays depending on personnel availability. Digital transcripts can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have additional questions about transcripts or your university is not currently issuing transcripts, please contact Aaron Walter. Due to current safety concerns, we ask that you do not attempt to submit any transcripts by hand at this time.
In an effort to provide the most accurate up-to-date information, SGS will not be posting answers to specific questions from graduate students because of the high frequency at which answers can change.
