Academic Policies & Procedures
Enrollment after the Qualifying Examination and Off-Campus Enrollment
After passing the qualifying examinations, a doctoral candidate must enroll each semester for dissertation or research credit at the regular fee until graduation. If the required number of dissertation credits is reached before the dissertation is completed, the candidate must continue to enroll for dissertation or research credits or HPER-G 901 (a 6 credit hour course with a flat $150 fee).
Enrollment during summer sessions is not required unless the degree is to be awarded during a summer session. Candidates must be enrolled during the semester (including summer) during which the degree is awarded.
Notes about HPER-G 901: HPER-G 901 is not offered during the summer sessions. Registration in HPER-G 901 is restricted to six semesters.
Doctoral candidates who are off campus and wish to enroll must contact the graduate recorder in the Records Office, HPER 115, for registration authorization. Students will be billed by the bursar for the appropriate tuition and fees.
