After completing all courses included in the planned programs or plans of study
for degrees, all degree-seeking graduate students must remain continuously
enrolled in each regular semester up to and including the semester in which
their degrees are awarded. This requirement applies also to the summer term for
students whose degrees are being awarded at the end of a summer term. This
continuous enrollment must be for a minimum of one-hour credit in research and
thesis, research and dissertation, or other work designated by the department or school.
When no suitable credit registration is available, or when students have previously
enrolled in at least the minimum number of 5599 (thesis) or 5699 (dissertation) or
equivalent credits required on their programs or plans of study,
students may fulfill the
continuous enrollment requirement by registration in continuous graduate
enrollment (5899) for no academic credit. Interruption of continuous registration due to
failure to comply with this requirement will result in the need for readmission under
requirements then in effect. Academic units may require retroactive enrollment
as a condition of readmission.
Continuous Graduate Enrollment (5899):
Courses designated as 5899, Continuous Graduate Enrollment,
are charged at the rate
established for one credit hour. Registration, by
mail or in person, must be completed by the end of the first week of a regular
semester or of a summer session. Students may obtain a reference number for 5899 from
the Registration and Records office.
