If you find that you are without funding for one or more quarters, these are your options for continued school enrollment:
The Planned Educational Leave Program allows any registered student-undergraduate or graduate-to temporarily suspend academic work at UC Davis. For graduate students the maximum leave is up to one year. Graduate students apply through their departments and professional students apply through their Dean's office. An application fee of $60 is charged to your account when you enroll in the PELP program. While students may receive academic credit at other institutions and transfer this credit to UC Davis (subject to rules concerning transfer credit), participants are reminded that the intent of the program is to suspend academic work. Therefore, students are urged to carefully evaluate the desirability of taking academic work while away from the campus during PELP.
Notes about PELP:
Filing Fee is a non-registered status available to graduate students who have advanced to candidacy for their degree. Filing Fee status maintains your eligibility to complete your degree while not registered, and within your approved time limitations. You can use this option when all of your courses and research have been completed; your thesis or dissertation is in final draft form or you are ready to take the Master's Comprehensive Examination; and you no longer need to use campus facilities. Forms are available in Graduate Studies or online HERE.

Notes about Paying your own tuition:
On a case-by-case basis, the Dean of Graduate Studies can approve graduate students for enrollment as part-time students. Part-time students are limited to no more than six units per quarter. Doctoral students advanced to candidacy are not eligible for part-time status. For more details visit Graduate Studies Graduate Student Handbook.
