If you stop taking courses mid-degree to do other stuff, perhaps for years, can you come back and finish university?
The APSC faculty has this time limit in which you have to do all your courses:
“To qualify for a degree, a student must complete a full undergraduate program as outlined in the Faculty Calendar within NINE calendar years of first registration, exclusive of mandatory absences from his or her program.”
There doesn’t seem to be anything relevant in the A&S calendar besides this:
“Re-Registration in the Faculty Students who were previously registered as degree or non-degree students in this Faculty, who have completed at least one course in the Faculty, and who wish to return after an absence must submit a “Request for Re-registration Form” (charge $25) through their college registrar’s office. Re-registration is necessary for students who have not registered in this Faculty within the previous 12 months.”
So, what is the expiration date on taken courses? Or do all art-scis have all the time in the world?
This is the only concern I could think of – if there are others, please let everyone know!

you’re right, arts & science students have no time limit on their degree. they can take off as much time as they want, and come back to complete a degree at any point. if they are away for more than a year, they just have to pay a $25 fee to get re-registered.
as far as i can tell, the information you found is correct. looks like engineers only have nine years to complete their degree. so, you can take time off, just not an indefinite amount. i guess it’s more important for an engineer’s knowledge to be fresh in their mind than it is for me to clearly remember the finer points of Bezukhov’s character in War & Peace on convocation day.
so there you go! one more thing engineering students can add to their ‘woe is me’ repertoire. you’re welcome, nerds.
P.S. i know how to categorize posts, my dude. i appreciate the help, but there’s no need for backseat blogging here on askastudent.
