Maintaining Matriculation

If a student is unable to register for courses in an upcoming term, or is working on a thesis or clinical supervision sequence, active student status may be maintained by enrolling in a non-credit maintaining matriculation, thesis continuation or clinical supervision course.

Enrollment in these courses will allow students to:

  • retain their PeopleSoft and Iona Gaels email accounts during the period of inactivity and receive all University communications;
  • receive an enrollment appointment for the upcoming term;
  • maintain degree currency and thereby keep the same degree requirements upon their return to the University.

There are no class meetings associated with these courses. Clinical and thesis registrants will set their own schedules with instructors and advisors as needed.

IMPORTANT: Maintaining matriculation, thesis continuation and clinical supervision are placeholder courses only. They do not provide term credit loads and cannot be used for in-school deferments for financial aid or loan repayment obligations. Please check with Student Financial Services and other lenders (if applicable) to confirm the ramifications of not maintaining continuous credit-bearing attendance.

Undergraduate Matriculation

There is a nominal fee per term associated with the maintenance course. Please refer to the University’s Tuition and Fee schedule.

Undergraduate students should contact the Center for Advising & Academic Services to set up matriculation maintenance.
