Students who have been separated from Duke are no longer active students and therefore forfeit the privileges afforded to enrolled Duke undergraduates. During your separation, you cannot enter university residential buildings (permission under the Housing Guest Policy does not apply to students on leave, or otherwise separated from Duke), participate in student activities, or access student resources and services. You are not eligible to work for Duke University units in job categories reserved for students, nor should you present yourself as an active student to the hiring personnel. If you have been hired in a position on the basis of your student status, and experience a subsequent separation from Duke, you are no longer eligible to accept the position. You must inform your academic dean and the hiring personnel that you are no longer eligible. During your separation period, you may not attend or audit a Duke course. If you are a student-athlete, a club member, member of a performance group, or hold an office in a student organization, you are not permitted to participate in meetings, rehearsals, practice sessions, have access to studios, stages, locker rooms, strength conditioning and film areas of DUAA or sit on the bench during contests.
If you believe there are compelling reasons for you to access resources on campus, you must obtain written permission from the director of the Office of Student Returns. You must submit a written note via email requesting special dispensation for limited access to specific campus resources and specify the time and duration of access. Your written request must be submitted seventy-two business hours before your anticipated time on campus. Please submit your email request to firstname.lastname@example.org and write “request to be on campus” in your subject line. Students who do not adhere to this policy will jeopardize their ability to return to Duke. Students who have been suspended from Duke continue to be held accountable for any sanctions, as communicated by the Office of Student Conduct. While you are away, I encourage you to be in touch with me if you have questions or concerns. Please note that a list of FAQs are available at http://trinity.duke.edu/osr/review-process-faqs.
Note: Students returning to Duke who are subject to the residency requirement noted above and fail to request housing will receive an assignment and be financially responsible for the term of the assignment.
