06.042 Continuous Enrollment
Revised to reflect the longstanding tradition of the Toulouse Graduate School to support students through various life circumstances. A one-time exception to the continuous enrollment requirement for graduate students enrolled in programs with a thesis or dissertation requirement. Students who successfully defend and submit their final thesis/dissertation after the current semester deadline promulgated by the Toulouse Graduate School, but before the last day of the term (per the Academic Calendar), are eligible to graduate the following semester without enrolling in thesis/dissertation hours. Flexibility has been provided for consequences associated with failure to adhere to the continuous enrollment policy by shifting language associated with consequences from will to may.
