Graduate students register for fall courses in the spring and vice versa. Details about registering for Independent Study, Pre-Dissertation Research, and Dissertation Research are included in the Degree Progress Checklist (available Oct. 2017). Please refer to the checklist for answers to these questions.
International students have separate requirements for full-time registration. The International Students and Scholars Office will have that information.
