Registration Reminders

Graduate students are required to register every fall and spring semester in order to remain active.

• Be sure to register before the first day of classes in order to avoid paying a late registration fee. Courses with low enrollment are often cancelled prior to the start of the semester; don't lose your chance to take a course because you didn't register in time. See cancel/add information for details on making registration changes.

• If you are working as a graduate assistant, are an international student, or are receiving a fellowship, you are required to register full-time (6-14 credits each semester).

• Ed Psych graduate students may not register for more than 24 credits of EPsy 8666 (pre-thesis credits) during their graduate career. NOTE: You must contact Lori Boucher (bouch004@umn.edu) in order to register for EPSY 8666.

• Advanced masters or doctoral students may register using the full-time equivalent registration (EPsy 8333 or 8444). If you have completed all coursework and registered for all thesis credits, you may qualify. Please note that masters students must apply for this status in advance. Each semester you register under this status you'll need to submit the "application for full-time status with one-credit registration" form. Details and forms are available at http://www.grad.umn.edu/students/registration/specialcategories/index.html.

• If you only need to register in order to remain active in the Graduate School, you may register for Grad 999, a no-cost/no-credit registration option. However, please note that EPsy students are only allowed to register for Grad 999 four times - two times for students beginning their program fall 2014 or later. More information about this registration option is available at http://www.grad.umn.edu/current_students/registration/special-categories.html#grad999. Upon registering for Grad 999 for the final semester allowed, a hold will be placed on your record and you will be required to submit a completion plan with objective benchmarks.

• If you are planning to take the written prelim exam, be sure to check with your program area for the registration deadline. You need to have submitted a degree program or degree plan in order to register for the written prelim.

• If you are taking your oral prelim within the first two weeks of the fall semester, be sure to return the Prelim Oral Examination Report to the Graduate Student Services (160 Williamson) immediately following the exam. You will also need to submit a copy of exam report form to 250 EdSciB on or before September 15 so that you can change your registration to EPsy 8888 (thesis credits) for fall 2014. Note: You need to schedule your oral prelim with the Graduate School; see their website for the scheduling form.

• Doctoral students may register for up to 6 doctoral thesis credits prior to passing the oral prelim exam if
a. the adviser determines the student is research ready,
b. the degree plan is submitted and approved,
c. the student completed 36 course credits that are included on the degree program/plan (masters courses may be included on the degree plan), and
d. the student submitted the doctoral thesis credit registration request form.
