Can I return from a leave of absence after a semester has already started?

In general, no; students may not return after the semester has started and should time their reinstatement accordingly. However, if circumstances preclude this and the student wishes to return very early in the semester, reinstatement during the restrictive drop/add period (the first two weeks of a fall/spring semester and the first week of an eight-week summer term) may be possible if the student's advisor or program coordinator and the dean of the Graduate College approve.
