Doctoral Students

Enrollment after the Qualifying Examination and Off-Campus Enrollment

After passing the qualifying examinations, a doctoral student 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 SPH-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 SPH-G 901: SPH-G 901 is not offered during the summer sessions. Registration in SPH-G 901 is restricted to six semesters.

Off-Campus Enrollment
Doctoral candidates who are off campus and wish to enroll must contact the graduate recorder in the School of Public Health - Bloomington records office, room 123, for registration authorization. Students will be billed by the bursar for the appropriate tuition and fees.
