Academic furloughs are given to students whose cumulative GPA is below retention and/or are not making satisfactory progress for the degree. When a student is on academic furlough, he or she may not take coursework at Montclair State University for one calendar year.
Students on academic furlough are eligible to apply for readmission through the Office of Admissions for the semester beginning one calendar year following the academic furlough. Readmission is automatic.
A student who is readmitted from academic furlough is given two semesters to raise the cumulative GPA to retention level and make satisfactory progress towards the degree. If the student does not perform at a 2.00 level the first semester back or is not at retention level after two semesters, the student is given an academic dismissal.
