2. Because the department curriculum is sequential in design, it is problematic for a student to leave the program in the middle of the year. If this happens, the student would need to re-enter the program at the same point in the curriculum sequence.

3. Any student on departmental probation at the time of his/her departure must re-audition for the Modern Dance Program upon their return.

4. If a student has a University scholarship at the time of their departure, they would need to check with Financial Aid regarding the status of that scholarship upon their return.

5. Department Scholarships will be discontinued if a student takes a leave of absence mid-year. Department scholarships are not “held” for students upon they return.
