REGISTRATION REMINDERS

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

• Be sure to register by January 18 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 spring's cancel/add deadlines 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).

• 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/current_students/registration/FTE_procedures.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. More information about this registration option is available at http://www.grad.umn.edu/current_students/registration/grad_999.html. Upon registering for Grad 999 for the fourth semester, a hold will be placed on your record and you must submit a completion plan with objective benchmarks.

• Ed Psych graduate students may not register for more than 24 credits of EPsy 8666 (pre-thesis credits) during their graduate career. PLEASE NOTE: YOU MUST CONTACT KATHY WALTE R (kwalter@umn.edu) IN ORDER TO REGISTER FOR EPsy 8666.

• If you are taking your oral prelim by February 1, be sure to return the Prelim Oral Examination Report to the Graduate School (316 Johnston Hall) immediately following the exam so that you can change your registration to EPsy 8888 (thesis credits) for Spring 2010. Note: You need to schedule your oral prelim with the Graduate School; see their website for the scheduling form.

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