Change to SpSt 996 Continuing Enrollment guidelines and fees
hour beginning in the Fall 2007 semester.
The Graduate School Policy on continuing enrollment has been
edited to align with current definitions of full-time enrollment and
a copy as it will appear in the UND Academic Catalog for fall 2007 is
Students who previously have registered for all of the necessary
credits of coursework, research, Scholarly Project (995), Independent
Study (997), Thesis (998), or Dissertation (999) on their approved
Program of Study, but who have not completed their independent study,
thesis or dissertation, must register for 996 Continuing Enrollment
each additional semester or summer session they are utilizing
university facilities or the time of the faculty ( i.e.,
laboratories, libraries, examinations, advisement, etc.). The number
of credits should be determined by the advisor to reflect the
proportion of time devoted by the student to academic study that
term, with a full-time student registering for nine (9) credits.
Graduate Assistants must register for at least six (6) credits which
may include a combination of formal coursework and continuing
enrollment credits. Advisor verification of the appropriateness of
the number of 996 credits may be required.
After two regular semesters of 6 to 9 credits in 996 for master's
students and after four regular semesters for doctoral students, a
student wishing to enroll in additional 996 credits will be required
to petition the Graduate School Dean.
Continuing Enrollment (996) credits will not count
toward the requirements for the degree. All students must be
enrolled for either 996 credits or other credits in the semester of
graduation. Students may register for both regular credits and 996
credits in a given term if all other conditions have been met.
Continuing Enrollment credits may be used to define a student's
enrollment status (i.e., part-time or full-time). The fee for
Continuing Enrollment (996) cannot be waived.
