Checklist - Recreation and Leisure Studies - (MA -coursework)

MA Recreation and Leisure Studies (coursework)

This checklist is designed to help you organize your progress through your program. The following tasks are your responsibility.

1.

Register ACTIVE every term (Fall, Winter, and Spring). Inactive registration is exceptional. If you do request INACTIVE status, you must seek approval from your advisor, the Associate Director, Graduate Studies, and the Associate Dean, Graduate Studies. Requests for inactive status will not always be approved.

If you fail to register for any term, you are automatically withdrawn from your program. Readmission is not guaranteed, and if granted, requires payment of fees for the term(s) you dropped out.  If you are readmitted, you will be required to register for a minimum of one term without a tuition refund.
