The Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing is a two-year program. Students are expected to enroll in every term (Fall/Spring) from
their initial matriculation to the completion of their program in order to maintain continuous enrollment. Students who do not
maintain continuous enrollment and do not have an approved Leave of Absence Petition on file, will be considered officially
withdrawn from the college and will need to petition for re-admission to continue the program.

A Leave of Absence postpones all deadlines concerning completion of degree requirements for the duration of the Leave of Absence.
During a Leave of Absence, student should not consult with faculty members, use the College’s resources, nor work with their Thesis
Faculty. A student on Leave of Absence may re-enter the program by contacting the MFA Administrative Office prior to their
scheduled semester of return. As long as a student re-enters the program by the approved term of re-entry, no re-admission fee is
required. If a student fails to register for the next term and has not been granted a leave of absence, that student must apply to be re-
admitted and pay a re-admission fee. The Application for Re-admission will be reviewed by a faculty committee which may choose to
re-admit or to deny re-admission. A student may take a maximum of three semesters of leave of absence throughout their program.
