Full Time Registration Requirement

Registration Policy for Newly Admitted Thesis-based Graduate Students

Students who are admitted to any thesis-based degree program (excluding cost-recovery programs) and who initially register as full-time students in these programs must register full-time for the remainder of their program.  This policy takes effect for students who begin September 2003 and thereafter.

Registration Policy for Doctoral Students

Students in the Ph.D. program are required to be in full-time residence for the first year of their program, and must maintain full-time registration for the duration of their program.  Doctoral degree students have six years to complete their program from their date of admission to the doctoral program.
