Continuous Enrollment for Graduate Candidacy Standing

Who May Enroll

Graduate students are required to maintain continuous enrollment from the time of first enrollment in a graduate program until they receive their degree. However, graduate students are not required to be enrolled in the summer. The College of Extended and Global Education (CEGE), in partnership with the Office of Graduate Studies, offers continuous enrollment courses whereby a student that has completed all course work and are preparing for their comprehensive exam, thesis, project, or dissertation can enroll and maintain good standing with the University. These courses are offered at a reduced rate and utilize active faculty for oversight.

Continuous Enrollment: Graduate students who have completed all other coursework will be allowed to enroll, with department consent, for zero-unit continuous enrollment courses through CEGE. Graduate students enrolled in continuous enrollment courses in this way shall retain the privileges of regularly matriculated students: access to email, library, learning management systems, and faculty.

Comprehensive Examination: Graduate students who have completed all other coursework will be allowed to enroll, with department consent, for the comprehensive examination through CEGE. Graduate students enrolled in the comprehensive exam in this way shall retain the privileges of regularly matriculated students: access to email, library, learning management systems, and faculty.

Graduate Portfolio: Graduate students will be allowed to enroll, with department consent, for the graduate portfolio through CEGE if the credit amount for this course is zero-unit. Graduate students enrolled in the graduate portfolio in this way shall retain the privileges of regularly matriculated students: access to email, library, learning management systems, and faculty.
