Continuous Enrollment Policy - Stopping Out of Program

If you are stopping out of the program for a quarter in the academic year (excluding summer quarter), be sure to email the EDAD Program staff to request an override for EDAD 699. You will need to register for EDAD 699 Continuous Enrollment for the quarter that you stop out of the program (excluding summer). EXCEPTION would be if you are graduating summer quarter but not registering for any coursework -- then you will need to register for EDAD 699 for summer.

The CRN for EDAD 699 is available in Classfinder each quarter; just add the CRN in Web4U like any other course. Continuous enrollment maintains your status as an active graduate student at Western, allowing use of libraries, technology, and facilities. If you are stopping out for more than one quarter, then you should apply for a “Leave of Absence” with the Graduate School (see below). When you return to the program, you will need to submit a Returning Grad Student form (cost is $100) using the link in the online ApplyWeb where you submitted your initial application. You can also refer to the Continuous Enrollment policy on the Graduate School website. WWU employee tuition waiver students are exempt from the Continuous Enrollment Policy.

Leave of Absence

The Continuous Enrollment requirement will be waived for students who are granted official leave of absence. Official leaves of absence must be requested of the Graduate Dean in instances of incapacitating injury or illness, personal emergency, military orders, or other extenuating circumstances. Contact the Graduate School for information. The quarter(s) you are not enrolled still count towards the five year limit on degree completion.   Please also inform the program as well.

Breaks in Enrollment (Unofficial Leave)

Students who fail to maintain Continuous Enrollment or receive approval for a Leave of Absence must fill out and submit the Returning Grad Student form (cost is $100) when they return to the program. This form is a link in the online ApplyWeb where you submitted your initial application. Please make sure that you have notified the program as well.

Tuition and Fees

The Student Business Office is responsible for the financial administration of all student billing related to tuition and fees, room and board, and for the processing of refunds as well as providing support and advice to students to aid in understanding their student account with the university. Tuition, fees and deadlines are posted here.

To contact the Student Business Office, call (360) 650-3470 or email sbo@wwu.edu.

Graduate Schools New Student Checklist page for more information. (You should have received this link in the email you received after you confirmed your admission.)

Graduation/Degree Completion

The master’s degree is earned at the end of the quarter in which the student has completed all degree requirements and has filed the Application for Degree esign form.

• Review current Degree Completion Deadlines.

• Then submit an Application for Degree esign form to the EDAD Program staff by the end of the quarter before you want to graduate.
