All graduate students must be registered during any semester or summer session in which University resources are being used (e.g., during the semester(s) in which they take their comprehensive examinations and during the semester in which the thesis, project or dissertation is defended to the Graduate School). Students who defend their thesis, project, or dissertation in one semester and plan to submit these documents to the Graduate School in the next semester do not need to register or pay tuition in the submission semester as long as the appropriate documents indicating a successful defense have been submitted to the Graduate School in the semester in which the defense occurred. Registration during either summer session will cover the use of university resources for the entire summer. Students do not need to be registered during the summer months in order to retain their status from one academic year to the next.
