Applicants for Reentry
There is no official leave of absence classification for graduate students; students who do not register for a semester are considered inactive. Such status is not noted on student records and does not extend the time limit for the degree or certificate. Inactive students who wish to return to the college within the same program must choose Reentry as their admissions application type.
Following are the deadlines to reenter:
- September 11 for fall admission
- February 11 for spring admission
- July 10 for summer admission
All applicants must pay a non-refundable $20 application fee. You have the option of paying by credit card, check, or U.S. Post Office money order. Please make the check or money order payable to Queens College. If you choose to pay by credit card, please follow the instructions on the application.
Note: All requirements for the Master of Arts, Master of Arts in Liberal Studies, Master of Arts in the Social Sciences, Master of Fine Arts, Master of Library Science, or Master of Science degree must be completed within a period of four years. The Master of Arts in Teaching or the Master of Science in Education degree must be completed within a period of five years. Graduate courses taken beyond these time periods cannot be counted toward the degree without permission of the Office of Graduate Studies (Kiely Hall, Room 139A; 997-5190). It is advisable for reentering students to inform their departments and make an appointment with a graduate advisor prior to registration.
