The application deadline to "Reactivate" your student status for Summer Session to the M.A. (Theology) degree program is April 15.
Summer registration for 2015 begins on March 18 and the deadline to add classes is June 16. All degree and non-degree graduate students must both register and complete the ND Roll Call process each semester during the dates and times announced by the University Registrar. Any admitted student who fails to register and complete the ND Roll Call process for one semester or more must seek re-instatement from the department and then from the Graduate School upon return. (See section 3.4 Continuous Registration.)
The 2015 Tentative Course Chart is posted. Please remember that these will remain tentative until 3-weeks prior to the start of the semester. Still, they may help you in thinking about your coursework in the coming months. Academic Year Offerings and the on-line courses, currently work like this: 1 course is offered in the Fall semester and 1 in the Spring semester. These courses are residential courses (on campus) that are video'd and uploaded for viewing, so if you are watching on-campus lectures on your own time work is then submitted to the professor & TA via email. We are working to develop a small library of on-line courses, so that what is offered is more predictable for our students. As it is, the online course must reflect the on-campus offerings. We have two other options during the school year: 1. A two week course in Tucson, Arizona during our winter break. 2. A two week course in Israel in late May/early June.
If you need to drop a course mid-semester (after the 6th day of class during the Academic Year or the 2nd day of class during Summer Session), please contact the Program Director for approval to do so, and MA Administrative Assistant, Hermalena Powell, for paperwork assistance.

Students will only receive an Incomplete grade with the instructor’s approval. Once given, the Incomplete grade will average as an “F” into the students’ GPA until it is changed upon successful completion of course requirements. If those requirements are not successfully met within 30 days after the semester ends, the Incomplete grade will be changed permanently into an F.
For MA students requiring a Leave of Absence, here is a summary of options as laid out by the Graduate School. For exceptional reasons and on the recommendation of the program, a student in good academic standing may request a leave of absence for a maximum of two consecutive semesters. A request for a leave of absence must be made before the semester in which the leave is taken, and all leaves of absence must be approved by the Graduate School. If, for some urgent reason, a student is allowed to leave the University after the beginning of the semester, the withdrawal procedure must be followed. If the student does not return at the end of the leave of absence period, he or she is no longer considered a student at Notre Dame and must apply for readmission if he or she wishes to complete the program. The Academic Code of the Graduate School can be found here.
