The Fall 2021 semester will start on August 26th. For the full academic calendar, visit the University Registrar.
We are waiving the requirement that all members of the dissertation defense committee must be physically present. Until further notice, we are not setting a limit on the number of committee members who may participate remotely in the defense. Non-committee attendees must view the defense virtually.
Beginning June 1, university-sponsored travel, including for research or academic conferences, may resume under these guidelines. You must complete the International Travel Request Form if you plan to undertake international university-sponsored travel or if you are unvaccinated and you plan to undertake domestic university-sponsored travel.
Within a week after you complete this form, you will receive an email from the GSAS Assistant Dean of Academic Affairs, which will either grant or deny your request to undertake university-sponsored travel.
If you would like to take a leave of absence for a semester or academic year, you should work with your program to determine the best course of action and to complete the leave of absence form. If you need to take a medical leave, you need to reach out to the Assistant Dean of Academic Affairs, Alyssa Stalsberg Canelli, to request information about the process. Once the leave of absence form is complete, it should be returned to Alyssa Stalsberg Canelli at email@example.com.
Students who take a leave of absence will not lose their spaces at GSAS.
