RE: Registration for Fall 2002
Welcome to a new academic year! As you finalize your enrollment for the
Fall term, a few important policies are provided here from the Graduate
School for your reference. They are also online in the Graduate Student
Handbook at http://gradschool.rgp.ufl.edu/education/currentstudents.html.
If you do not understand any of these policies or have questions about your
particular situation, please contact your department
Drop/Add. The deadline to adjust course registration without fee liability
is August 30,2002 at 5:00 p.m. Telegator and ISIS will provide confirmation
of your transactions. If you donít get a confirmation, then the registration
transaction has not been completed. Any course drop/add processed after the
deadline will result in registration fee liability, even for students with
fee waivers. You should contact the department for assistance if you are
having a problem with Telegator or ISIS. In any case, please confirm your
registration during the drop/add period so that errors may be easily
Minimum Registration. No graduate student who is enrolling for this term
may register for fewer than 3 credits. During the terms of the qualifying
examination or the final examination, and in which the degree is awarded,
the student must be registered for credits that count toward the degree.
Students with an assistantship or fellowship must fulfill appropriate
registration based on their appointment.
Final Term Registration. During the Fall, students, not on appointment,
must be registered for no fewer than 3 credits in courses that count toward
the degree. Thesis students should be registered for 6971 and doctoral
students for 7980.
Admission to Candidacy and 7979/7980 registration. Students are blocked from
7980 registration unless their classification is 9. Students should register
for 7979. Upon receipt of the Admission to Candidacy form, the Graduate
School will request the change in classification from 8 to 9 and the
registration to 7980 for that term. Submission of the form late in the term
will delay your change in classification until after the drop/add period of
the following term due to constraints within the Registrarís Office. If you
have been admitted to candidacy and cannot register for 7980, contact your
department to confirm when the form was submitted to the Graduate School.
Cleared Prior. Students exempted from final term registration for Fall 2002
must have met all of the following conditions before the start of the first
day of classes on August 26: 1. Must have been correctly registered in the
Summer term, 2. Completed all degree requirements, including final
submission of the dissertation, thesis, or project, 3. Submitted the final
examination form for nonthesis degrees, 4. Resolved all incompletes and
problems before the first day of classes (August 26), and 5. Applied for
graduation by the September 20 degree application deadline. If you did not
meet all of these requirements and intend to graduate in Fall 2002, then you
must be registered appropriately.
Continuous Enrollment. Students who have not been enrolled for two or more
continuous terms must reapply for admission, including residency. The
Application for Readmission is submitted to Graduate Admissions in the
Registrar's Office http://www.reg.ufl.edu/pdf/grad-readmission-app.pdf. If
readmitted, the student will then fall under a new catalog and any policy
changes that may have been approved since the last
enrollment unless the student obtained an approved leave of absence.
