Failure to Matriculate (FTM) Policy

The Failure to Matriculate policy relates to all St Andrews students (including postgraduate research, part-time, online, ELT, single semester students and students who are studying or working abroad for credit).

Matriculation is the process of registering as a student with the University. All students must complete the matriculation process each academic year in which they are actively engaged in their programme of studies in order to maintain their University of St Andrews student status.

Any student who fails to complete the matriculation process within the prescribed timescales, or who fails to obtain permission from the University to interrupt their studies within a prescribed time, will lose their fully matriculated student status at the University of St Andrews.

The 'Failure to Matriculate' policy replaces the 'Failure to Register' policy.
