Registration and Related Policies


Ph.D. students are expected to register during each fall and winter semester from matriculation to degree completion, unless on an approved Leave of Absence or on Extramural Study Status. If a student does not register for a term, he or she will be considered to have withdrawn and therefore, discontinued from the Ph.D. program. If the student wishes to return to their program they will need to apply for reinstatement.
