STUDENT ENROLLMENT STATUS
Your enrollment status is based on the number of credits for which you are registered. See the Admission and Financial Information section of this catalog for details.
WITHDRAWAL FROM THE UNIVERSITY
You may withdraw from the University at any time by contacting the appropriate office. Weekend College students must contact the Weekend College Office. Day students on the St. Paul campus must contact the Office of Academic Advising. Associate degree students contact their program director. In all cases, the effective date of withdrawal is the date on which you initially contact the appropriate office.
No refunds of tuition are given unless you have officially withdrawn. Refunds are made on a prorated basis according to the schedules published in the Summary of Financial Procedures distributed by the Student Accounts Office and on the University's website.
LEAVE OF ABSENCE
ASSOCIATE DEGREE PROGRAM
Students wishing to stop attending classes and return after one semester may request a leave of absence. Associate Degree Students contact their program director to request a leave of absence. Contact the Minneapolis Registrar's Office for registration materials when you are ready to return.
If you are away from the University for more than one semester you must request a re-enrollment form from the Office of the Registrar when you return from leave and prior to registering for courses.
Students wishing to stop attending classes and return after one semester (one to two terms for Weekend College students) may request a leave of absence. Students in the day program contact the Office of Academic Advising to request a leave. Weekend College students contact the Weekend College Office. You will receive registration information from either the Office of Academic Advising or Weekend College during your leave.
If you are away from the University for more than one semester (or more than two terms for Weekend College students) you must complete a re-enrollment form (available online) when you return from leave and prior to registering for courses.
RESERVISTS CALLED TO ACTIVE DUTY
In the event that a registered student of St. Catherine University is called to active duty in the service of the armed forces of the United States, the following policy regarding the student's registration and accounts will be in effect:
1. The student's official status will be leave of absence.
2. Tuition and fees will be reduced to zero.
3. Room and board accounts will be prorated to reflect the exact date of withdrawal.
4. Bookstore accounts and any outstanding library fines will be the responsibility of the student.
5. Financial aid will be applied to whatever balance remains on the account, with the remainder of the aid remitted to the federal, state or university accounts from which it came.
6. If the call for active duty occurs after the 10th week of classes, students may consider arranging for incompletes with the instructor, in which case the student would be responsible for all tuition and fees connected with the class.
Students who are called to active duty should be in touch with the Registrar's Office in order to initiate this process.
READMISSION TO THE UNIVERSITY
HEALTHCARE CERTIFICATE AND ASSOCIATE DEGREE PROGRAMS
If you discontinue course work for any reason, you must apply for re-enrollment through the Registrar's Office. Program completion time limits apply to re-enrolled students; time away from the University is counted toward the seven year maximum (five year maximum for major course work).
Petitions for readmission after academic suspension will be reviewed by the associate academic dean. When you return to the University after an absence of one year or more you will be required to meet the same degree requirements as newly admitted students.
Students in good standing who have been away from the University more than one semester (or more than two terms for Weekend College students) may apply for readmittance by contacting the Office of Admission. An additional application fee is not charged.
Petitions for readmission after academic suspension must be addressed to the academic dean.
Typically, program requirements established at the time of admission do not change for students who leave the University and return within two years to complete their programs. If your absence from the University extends two or more years you will need to complete the program requirements under the catalog in effect at the time of your re-enrollment. Appeals to this policy should be directed to the office of academic affairs.
