Lapse of Status


Lapse of status is the automatically enforced withdrawal of a student from the university. A student's status may be lapsed for failure to:

  • Comply with the conditions for admission.
  • Register and enroll in courses by the deadline stated in the Calendars & Deadlines.
  • Satisfy all financial obligations when due or to make satisfactory arrangements with the Billing Office if payment cannot be made.
  • Respond to official university notices, including failure to remove blocks.

 

Students who wish to regain enrolled status for the quarter he/she has been lapsed, the student must follow the Late Registration process. Please contact the Office of the Registrar at Registration@sa.ucsb.edu or 805-893-3592, select option 1, prior to submitting the Late Registration Form. Students can down load the Late Registration Petition and obtain the necessary signatures prior to submitting the petition to the Office of the Registrar. Students receiving Financial Aid will have their aid cancelled for the quarter their status has been lapsed.
