RE:     Registration for Spring 2005


Welcome to a new academic year!  As you finalize your enrollment for the
Spring term, a few important policies are provided here from the
Graduate School for your reference. They are also online in the Graduate
Catalog, Graduate Student Handbook, and FAQ page at


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 January 7, 2005. ISIS will provide confirmation of your
transactions. If you don't 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 ISIS. In any case, please
confirm your registration during the drop/add period so that errors may
be easily corrected.


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 regardless of "need" for


Final Term Registration.  During the Spring, 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. Students with an assistantship or fellowship
must fulfill appropriate registration based on their appointment--it is
not based on "need" for credits.


Cleared Prior.  Students exempted from final term registration for
Spring  2005 must have met all of the following conditions before the
start of the first day of classes on January 4: 

1. Must have been correctly registered in the Fall 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, and 5. Applied for graduation by the January 28
degree application deadline. If you did not meet all of these
requirements and intend to graduate in Spring 2005, 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 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.
