Note:  Maintaining Matriculation has been converted into Continuous Registration.  This information will be updated soon.

The Graduate Division of Religion (GDR) regulations require that all students in matriculated programs maintain enrollment in the GDR until the completion of their degree program. To fulfill this requirement, each semester, all matriculated graduate students must be either registered for course work, maintaining matriculation, or on an approved leave of absence. Students should register for maintaining matriculation statuses in sequence as they complete the remaining requirements for their degree program. Most maintaining matriculation statuses are non-repeatable. In some exceptional cases, students can repeat certain statuses with the approval of both the Dean of the Graduate Division of Religion and the University Registrar.
