Despite more students pay-
ing tuition, the policy has been
revenue neutral for the Univer-
sity, Weiss said, as tuition was
lowered to ensure the University
wasn't profiting from the added
students enrolled each semester.
University President Mary
Sue Coleman said in an inter-
view in December that she
hadn't heard any complaints
about the new continuous
"I think the fact that I haven't
heard anything about it is a
really good sign," Coleman said.
"As I understand, -we've had a
pretty smooth transition. We've
protected those students who
would've been affected adversely
by this. We have many more stu-
dents now registered so we can
monitor them and follow them
and make sure they're making
progress. My sense is that every-
one is happy."
University Provost Philip
Hanlon said in an interview last
month that he spoke with Weiss
in late December about the pol-
icy, and she told him everything
was going well.
"What we had when we insti-
tuted continuous enrollment is
they had modeled a growth in
enrollment of doctorate candi-
dates, and the actual growth is
dead on to what they predicted,"
Hanlon said. "That part seems
to be working really smoothly.
Dean Weiss reported almost no
sort of complaints, problems or
issues in terms of students hav-
ing the support they need to be
But before the implementa-
tion, some students were upset
they would only be allowed to
take leaves of absence under cer-
tain approved circumstances like
health problems, family emer-
gencies, pregnancy and military
However, Weiss said only 74
students took a leave of absence
Students who want to take
a leave of absence that isn't
approved can petition the Rack-
ham administration to get con-
sent. They also have the optionto
resolve the dispute in front of an
appeal board of students and fac-
ulty. The board - established by
the school's administration and
Rackham Student Government -
has yet to hear a case, Weiss said.
"So far we have not had even
a single dispute, so I'm hopeful
that that means people feel like
the policy is being implemented
in ways that are fair and reason-
able," Weiss said. "If they're not,
they'll come forward because we
have people who can help."
However, several faculty
members, including Gina Poe,
an associate professor at the
University's Medical School and
vice chair for the Senate Advi-
sory Committee on University
Affairs, raised concerns to Weiss
and other University adminis-
trators when the policy was pro-
"The problem is that these
boards don't know the students
and their life situations and the
reasons why the students might
feel like this is the best decision
for them and their community,"
Poe said at SACUA's Dec. 17,
2009 meeting. "It puts them in
an ivory tower in these very per-
sonal, very difficult and some-
times complicated decisions of
whether someone should take
leave from their studies."
Weiss said that a small number
of disputes were resolved before
the appeals process was created.
"There have been issues that
have come up, but we've been
able to make sure that students
are in their right status," Weiss
said. "So if they should be on
leave, they are on leave; if they
should be enrolled, then they are
enrolled; and if they need to be
supported, then they get the sup-
port they need. So there's been
a lot individual problem solving
that needed to happen, which
we expected and we've been pre-
A survey of graduate stu-
dents conducted last September
revealed most students were
content with the continuous
enrollment policy and said they
anticipated it wouldn't affect
them, accordingto Weiss.
"The policy was sort of just
coming into implementation at
that moment (the survey was
taken), and we wanted to know
whether students knew about
the policy because not 411 stu-
dents know about all the aca-
demic policies," Weiss said.
A few of the students surveyed
did express some concern that
the policy would affect them,
specifically by preventig them
from researching or studying
abroad, Weiss said.
"We are working with those
departments to make sure that
is not the case and that those
students have exactly the same
opportunities to do their work
abroad as they always had and
that the departments are pro-
viding the necessary tuition
support so students can do
that," she said.
