Students who complete a term and do not enroll for the following term at DePaul remain active and eligible to enroll until they are formally discontinued. Discontinuation occurs when:
- The student does not register in the term for which they were admitted.
- The student does not register for three consecutive quarters (or for Law two semesters), excluding summers. In these cases students must seek readmission.
- The student has not made progress toward the degree for three consecutive terms, excluding summers.
Candidates for theses, dissertations and students on year-long study abroad programs are excluded from this rule. In these cases, students must meet with a college academic advisor to get permission to register and/or seek readmission.
Note: Students in the School of Music, the Theatre School and the College of Law who need to take a term (or terms) off must consult their college office.
