Effective Fall 2016, students pursuing a graduate degree who have completed all degree requirements, and have enrolled in but not completed a capstone, practicum, or thesis, will be required to maintain continuous enrollment at Washburn University until graduation (unless a leave has been approved). Continuous enrollment means that candidates must be enrolled in at least one credit hour until degree requirements are met. If all other course work has been completed, students will be required to enroll in a one-credit-hour class determined by the department each semester until the program is completed. Credit hours completed through the continuous enrollment course will not count toward the credit hours required for graduation and will be recorded as a pass on the transcript. This requirement also applies to the summer session for students whose degrees are being awarded at the end of the summer session. Interruption of continuous registration due to a failure to follow this requirement will result in a need for readmission to the program.
