Registration for Maintaining Matriculation, Dissertation Research, & Tutorials

*The signature of your Academic Advisor is now required to register for Continuous Registration and Dissertation Research.*

Continuous Registration

To assist students in the registration process for Continuous Registration, we have made the following changes to the process:

  1. A description of each maintaining matriculation status will appear on the course list. Students can use this information to assist them in the registration process.
  2. Additional statuses have been created to eliminate the need for students to repeat the same status multiple times.
  3. A website listing instructions on the registration for Continuous Registration statuses is available here.

The fee for this status is $750.00

Dissertation Research

Our office has also made a change to the course number for dissertation research and tutorials. All dissertation research courses have been changed for Ph.D students according to the following: Old designation, ENGLG 999 , etc. These designations belonging to all MA/PhD departments are now DISG 998 and DISG 999. (All MA, PhD students* have to complete two course sections for dissertation research). *Students in Modern History and Literature complete only one section of dissertation research, (DISG 998).

The registration form should carry the title of the tutorial and the name of the instructor.
