Inactive Status

Inactive Status (also known as leave of absence) is intended as a temporary suspension of a degree program, for a defined period of time (normally a maximum of one or two terms), with the exception of parental leaves, which may be for a maximum of three terms. Students taking a parental leave are not required to petition and must complete the Notice of Parental Leave.

If you accept an offer of admission, you are expected to maintain continuous registration until the degree requirements are met.

Temporary Withdrawal

If you require an absence that extends beyond the allowable maximum, or are uncertain of your return date (leave of absences have a defined start and end date), you are encouraged to temporarily withdraw (under the calendar provisions).

Access During Inactive Status

If you are on Inactive Status, or who have withdrawn from the university, you will not have access to university resources, including those accessible via the OneCard.
