Any student who does not enroll for any course work relevant to Computer Science in any one semester (summer semesters excluded) must supply the Department with a written statement describing the reasons for such inactivity and the student's current intentions concerning work towards the degree. This statement must be received by the Department by the end of the eighth week of the semester in question. Failure to do so will be regarded as evidence of a lack of interest in continuing in the program. Similarly, any student who does not enroll for any Computer Science course work for three consecutive semesters (summer semesters excluded) will be regarded as showing a lack of interest in continuing in the program. In either case, the student may be asked to explain to the Department why the student should not be removed from the degree program, with the Department making the final decision on the removal.
All requirements for the MS degree must be completed within four years of the start of course work.
