3.06 The Council on Student Affairs
The Council on Student Affairs (CSA), chaired by the Dean for Students, is a committee comprised of the Academic Society Associate Masters and staff from the Offices Student Affairs, Registrar, Financial Aid and Advising Resource. The CSA reviews changes in student status and academic plans, including changes in status (for students who have completed Year III) from a four-year to five-year MD program, leaves of absence, and study in another degree program, and discusses policies and administrative practices as they pertain to students. To request a change in status, students should contact their Academic Society and meet with their Associate Master. See also information on the Five-Year MD Program, Sections 1.05 and 1.06.
